Former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to late Head of State, General Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha (rtd) has alleged that some Yoruba leaders took bribes to conceal the killers of MKO Abiola.
Al-Mustapha made this disclosure on Monday while addressing journalists at a gathering to broker peace between the North and South-Eastern parts of the country.
He, however, did not name those who gave the bribe.
He said he has video evidence of how Yoruba elders collected the bribe and has since submitted the recording to a Lagos High Court presided over by Justice Mojisola Dada.
According to him, a day after Abiola died, a Yoruba leader visited the villa alongside his friends. “He came with anger into the villa. At that material time, they came to fight the government, considering their tone. They went into the meeting, they came out laughing, yelling and jeering as if nothing happened in the country,” he said.

“In that tape, money exchanged hands and they traded with Abiola and that is my anger.
“The tape is in that court, anybody that wants to watch it can get it and watch, it is now a public document. I didn’t want to talk about it before, but money was brought from the Central Bank in my presence and it was shared.
“I am telling Nigerians what really happened. Why should a person from the same South West, who is supposed to protect Abiola’s interest, now be seen to be angry with me? He should be happy with me for saying the fact, so that it will not happen again in Nigeria.
“In Yoruba land where culture is the watchword, late MKO Abiola was the last Aare Ona Kakanfo and for a Yoruba man going against Aare Ona Kakanfo, what is that thing,” he said.
