Al-Mustapha shares how late Sani Abacha’s loot was taken out of Nigeria

Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, the chief security officer to former Nigeria military head of state, late Sani Abacha, has opened up on looting of the nation under the administration of his boss and how the never-ending funds were taken out of the country.

Speaking to Vanguard in an interview on issues surrounding the deceased military leader, Al-Mustapha said the first time he heard the word ‘loot’ in connection with the federal government was when he was in Kirikiri prison.

The former CSO went on to explain that he wasn’t consulted and also had nothing to do with the money as he was embarrassed to hear the word loot. According to him, he was uncomfortable when loot is mention during Abacha’s regime because he knew how prudent the late head of state was.

Al-Mustapha speaking on how the money left Nigeria, said: “What I know is that there was a time sanction were imposed on Nigeria by the UK, the US and two other countries and that was at the behest of some senior Nigerians who believed that they must fight Gen Abacha.

But to counter the sanctions, then-Head of State requested to talk with stakeholders from across Nigeria, north, and south, and there was a discussion on the sanctions and the threat against the country; the meeting held in Abuja but outside the Villa because of the size of the people in attendance that was bigger than the size of the Conference Hall inside the Presidency.

The agreement at that meeting was to take funds outside into the hands of people in the private sector so that the nation could still import and export to, at least, beat the sanctions. That I know of.”
