Wife of a former Military Head of States, Late Sabi Abacha has faulted negative impressions of her husband, adding that people just hate him for no reason.
Maryam Abacha who made her observations during an with Kano Focus interview to mark the 22nd anniversary of his death, argued that the truth about Abacha’s contribution to the nation would become known in no time.
She said Kano elites betrayed her husband, who died in 1998, despite “his contributions to the development of the state and country”.
“How come this man was not a thief until he died?
“What is this amount of money after 22 years you say oh we have found this amount of money and we’re bringing it back?
“It is a shame to tell lies on a dead man! It is a shame to tell lies on your leader.
“If he had done wrong, God knows. If other people are putting the wrong on him, it is a matter of time.
Several monies linked to the former head of state have been recovered since 1998.
Hamza Al-Mustapha, who served as Abacha’s chief security officer, recently said the military general kept money overseas so that Nigerians will not suffer.
