Major Al Mustapha Demands Apology From DailySun For Misleading Report
J. B. Daudu & Co., the counsel to former chief security officer to General Sani Abacha i.e Major Al Mustapha who was unjustly convicted of murder of late Alhaja Kudirat Abiola and sentenced to death by hanging by a Lagos court has threatened to charge DailySun for false and malicious coverage of a recent court proceedings. DailySun reported below
Lagos State Government has secured an order of the Supreme Court to re-open the murder case of late Alhaja Kudirat Abiola, against Major Hamza Al-Mustapha (retd), former chief security officer (CSO) to late military Head of State, General Sani Abacha.
Kudirat was the wife of late business mogul, Bashorun Moshood Kashimawo Abiola, presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, which annulled by former military President, Ibrahim Babangida.
In a brief ruling on the application brought by the Lagos State government to re-open the case, yesterday, the apex court granted the request for the appellant to challenge the Court of Appeal decision of July 12, 2013 that discharged and acquitted Al-Mustapha from the murder case.
Reacting to the court’s decision, Chairman of the Arewa Young Lawyers Forum (AYLF), Mr. Sadiq Abubakar Ilela, who witnessed the proceedings, hailed the ruling.
Ilela, who said he was in court with some members of his group to show support for Al-Mustapha, said the leave granted Lagos would allow the court to determine the case on merit.
Major Al Mustapha sees the publication above as misrepresentation of the facts. Below is the Letter to DailySun from Al Mustapha’s Counsel JB Daudu.
