The Convener, Coalition of Democrats for Electoral Reform and former NADECO leader, Chief Ayo Opadokun on Monday described the former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to late Head of State, General Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha(rtd) as a pathological liar.
Al-Mustapha had earlier told newsmen in Kaduna State that Opadokun and some Yoruba leaders collected bribe from those who killed MKO Abiola at the Aso Rock.
Reacting to this development, Opadokun said Al-Mustapha is a liar who must be ignored.
“Al-Mustapha is a pathological liar who must be ignored. When he was being prosecuted for the murder of Kudirat Abiola , and we said what he did was wrong he just suddenly made this allegation against us to the media but when I castigated him, he recanted that he didn’t say so, that we didn’t collect money .
“Now he has started blabbing again, he is seeking for attention, he should be ignored . We are the ones who sacrificed a lot and our lives for the restoration of democracy to Nigeria.
“We did everything humanly possible for the validation of Chief Abiola’s mandate , the de-annulment of his victory in the June 12, 1993 polls , we are credible people unlike him, he was the veritable instrument used by the late dictator Gen. Sani Abacha to punish, to humiliate and to oppress Chief MKO Abiola in detention,” he said.
Opadokun said Al-Mustapha would have to account for his misdeed one day.
