MKO Abiola, Susan Rice & a deadly cup of tea - By Femi Fani Kayode

Ambassador Susan Rice was up until recently the American Ambassador to the United Nations. Her long-standing aspiration of becoming the Secretary of State for her country was dashed when the Republicans in the Senate started sharpening their knives in anticipation of her formal nomination for that position by President Barak Obama.
 
Sensing that her nomination would not scale through the Senate and that she would not be confirmed as Secretary of State due to the role she played in the cover up of the Benghazi affair in which the American Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other American citizens were murdered by a group of islamist terrorists, her nomination was withdrawn. 
 
 
Instead of Secretary of State, President Obama has now nominated her for the position of National Security Advisor which is a job that does not require Senate approval or confirmation. I wish Susan Rice well in her new assignment but I am constrained to ask the following questions and the people of Nigeria would like to have the answers. What did she put in the tea that she served to Chief MKO Abiola on July 8th 1998 just before he died? She was one of the last people that saw him alive, she served him some tea, he coughed violently, collapsed right in front of her and her team and one hour later he was dead. What was in the tea? Was it Abuja ''green tea'', Darjeeling, Earl Grey, Liptons or some other more exotic brand?
 
Can someone please ask Susan Rice what her role was in the death of MKO Abiola? Who sent her to do the job and who was she working for? At that time she was Assistant Secretary of State for America in President Bill Clinton's government. Was she acting on his direct instructions or simply on the instructions of her boss and controller in Langley?
 
Chief MKO Abiola was the winner of Nigeria's freest and fairest elections. That election took place on June 12th 1993. The following day it was annuled by General Ibrahim Babangida. Shortly after that, as a consequence of the sheer outrage that was generated by the annulement, Babangida was compelled to ''step aside'' and hand over power to Chief Ernest Shonekan. In what was clearly a strategic manouver he left General Sani Abacha (his own Chief of Army Staff) behind to be the Minister of Defence for the incoming administration.
 
A few months later Abacha toppled the Interim National Government of Chief Ernest Shonekan which he had served and seized power for himself. Abiola was arrested and detained. He was never granted his freedom again. Four years later Abacha himself was murdered by forces that are yet to be identified and General Abdulsalami Abubakar took power. Exactly 30 days after Abacha was killed, those same forces that killed him murdered Abiola as well in an attempt to ''balance the equation''.
 
These are the facts and sequence of events. One thing is self-evident and cannot be denied no matter which side of the divide one may have been on in the June 12th saga- certain questions must be answered. And some of those questions are as follows. Who killed MKO Abiola? Who killed Sani Abacha? Who sent the respected Chief Emeka Anyaoku (the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth at the time) and Mr. Kofi Annan (the Secretary General of the United Nations at the time) to meet with Abiola and ask him to relinquish and renounce his mandate if he wanted to be released? What was their response when Abiola refused to do so? What role, if any, did officials of the Abubakar administration play in the murder of both Abacha and Abiola? What role did the CIA play and exactly what transpired in the room when Assistant Secretary of State Susan Rice (as she then was), Ambassador Thomas Pickering and two other faceless and nameless officials from the American Embassy met with Abiola on that fateful day. For how long did Ambassador Pickering give him mouth to mouth resuscitation after he collapsed? Sadly instead of being revived and released that day Abiola died in what can only be described as mysterious and questionable circumstances.
 
This is all the more so because Abiola's security officer and the man that was charged with looking after him and protecting him throughout the time that he was incarcerated (an honest, upstanding and courageous police officer by the name of ASP Zadok) told the Oputa panel in 2002 that Abiola was ''hale and hearty'' and in ''very high spirits'' just before going into the meeting with the Americans. He went further by telling the panel that as he was about to enter Aguda House (the premises where the meeting was scheduled to be held) with Abiola he was asked to leave his principal, to step out of the premises and to go and pick up another car from somewhere else by one of General Abdulsalami's security officers. He promptly obeyed the order but half an hour later when he came back he found Abiola in a terrible condition, coughing violently, writhing all over the floor in pain and breathing his last breath. Thirty minutes later he gave up the ghost.
 
Another question that needs to be answered is the one that the respected columnist Mr. Gbolobo Ogunsanwo has dubbed as ''the question of the missing one hour''. Permit me to explain. According to the testimony that was given to the Oputa Panel by Major Hamza Al Mustapha, who was General Abacha's Chief Security Officer, from the first day that Abiola was arrested right up until the day that he was murdered he (Al Mustapha) was in charge of his (Abiola's) security. Each time Abiola was moved from one safe house to another he had to sign for it. Each time Abiola ate his food or drank anything, his men tasted and drank it before-hand. He went as far as to say that each time Abiola went to the toilet he was made aware of it and that nothing happened around Abiola or to him without his direct permission and the involvement of his most loyal men. After Abacha was murdered and Abdulsalami Abubakar became Head of State, Al Mustapha was still in charge of Abiola's security and he still maintained direct responsibility for his life, his well-being and his welfare right up until the minute that he was murdered.
 
When Mustapha appeared before the Oputa Panel he exposed the fact that in the entire period of four years that he and his team watched over Abiola it was only in the one hour that he was killed that they had no knowledge or control of what was happening to or around him. According to him, Abiola was removed from the guest house that he had been staying without his (Al Mustapha's) signature or knowledge and without anyone seeking his permission. Simply put he was kept in the dark about the whole thing. Secret orders were given to keep him out of the loop, to take Abiola to a destination which he knew nothing about and to ensure that none of the usual trusted food tasters and minders were with him. The only person that accompanied Abiola from the old guard of those that had watched over him for the previous four years was ASP Zadok and when they arrived at Aguda House (the venue of the meeting) he was conveniently sent on a meaningless errand by General Abdulsalami Abubakar's Chief Security Officer and told to leave. Hence for the first time in four years Abiola was left completely on his own and he was surrounded by a coterie of strange faces who had no genuine affection or empathy for him. He was with them for one hour and during that hour not one of those that had watched over him, that had secured his safety and that he had grown familiar with over the entire four year period of his incarceration was with him. It was during that ''missing hour'', when he was all alone and very vulnerable, that he was poisoned.
 
Sadly by the time Zadok, who was undoubtedly loyal to him, returned to the scene Abiola was already dying. The question is who gave the order for Abiola to be brought to that meeting? Why did they keep Al Mustapha in the dark about it? Why was Zadok sent to bring another vehicle that was obviously not needed? That one hour, and what transpired during it's course, holds the key to everything. It appears that Abiola was lured into a trap by a group of smiling strangers who did not wish him well and who had sinister plans for him. It was like leading a lamb to the slaughter.  
 
Given these circumstances I have no doubt that this was a case of premeditated murder but the question is whose call was it and why did it have to happen? What was the motive? Was it done just to ''balance the equation'' as some said at the time or was it done in an attempt to pave the way for an Obasanjo Presidency one year later? Could General Olusegun Obasanjo have been released from jail and elected President if Abiola had lived and if he had insisted on claiming his mandate? The Nigerian people have a right to know the truth and it is about time that those that have wielded power in this country for the last few decades told them. The powers that be must appreciate the fact that they cannot sweep things under the carpet forever and that one day, no matter how long it takes, they will be held accountable by God and the Nigerian people for the morbid, secret and oftentimes homicidal choices and decisions that they made.
 
Yet the truth is that the military operates like a cult and we may never get an honest answer from any of them about what really happened. This is because there are very few Col. Abubakar Dangiwa Umar's in the Nigerian military. Very few of them are prepared to break ranks with the leadership and break the ''omerta'' code of silence like Abubakar Umar did over the June 12th election. Very few of them are prepared to call a spade a spade, speak the truth, expose the lie and damn the consequences. Most of them continue to spin the yarn and tell the lie that Abacha and Abiola's deaths were both from natural causes and that it was just a coincidence that one dropped dead on June 8th 1998, just 4 days before the 5th anniversary of June 12th, and the other droped dead exactly one month later on July 8th 1998. As they say ''the secrets are embedded in the sequence of events, the numbers and the dates'' and, in this case, the sequence of events, the numbers and the dates really do tell an interesting and revealing story.
 
 Yet no matter how hard they try to cover her up and silence her, truth is stubborn and she cannot be drowned. She is like a pack of straws that are held together and pinned down by an all-powerful hand at the bottom of a river. As long as she is held at the bottom of that river she cannot be seen or heard. Yet one day, in the fullness of time, that all-powerful hand that seeks to supress her forever will get tired and let go and at that point Lady Truth will happily float to the top of the water where she will be seen and heard by all. It is in the same way that one day, in the fullness of time, the pernicious and perfidious verdict of "death by natural causes" or "act of God" that the powers that be have claimed are the causes of Abiola and Abacha's deaths respectively will be exposed for what they are.
 
 
The fact of the matter is that until these questions are answered and justice is done Nigeria will not know lasting peace and she cannot possibly achieve her fulll potentials. It is a spiritual thing. Abiola gave his life that we may have a better tomorrow yet we refuse to acknowledge it or to bring his killers to justice. We are repaying his good with evil and the consequences of that are set out in the Word of God. Whatever anyone may have thought of him as a person, the fact remains that had it not been for Abiola's sheer resilience, courage, steadfastness, sacrifice and gallant refusal to bow before the Nigerian military and give up his 1993 Presidential mandate we would not have democracy in Nigeria today. He was faithful to his cause to the very last. In return for that the least we could do is to ask the relevant questions, demand the appropiate answers and expose the bitter truth. We owe MKO Abiola, his wife Kudirat (who was also murdered) and all the other June 12th and NADECO footsoldiers and martyrs that much.

Goodness Linda, your audience are very ....Thank you Mr FK. God would judge all these people. No one has any right to take the life of another. Abiola was friends with beggars on Allen avenue and world leaders. Envy and the fact that he was too powerful made them kill him. IBB is in great pain, Obj is already a dead man walking, Salam is dying slowly, David Mark has already paid his undertakers. June 12 would continue to be a reoccurring decimal in the history of Nigeria until the wrongs are corrected. RIP to THE GREAT MKO.

Abiola was part of the problemwith Nigeria! He was the financier of countless coup in Nigeria & benefitted tremendously financially from the khaki boyz. June 12th in my opinion was an attempt byAAbiola to redeem his image which the OG Maradona IBB & his fellow malo cohorts just laughed at. Go listen to Fela ITT, the abami eda had absolute disdain for Abiola & for good reasons. So Fani Kayode should please spare us with the crap, Abiola was sold out by his own yoruba brethren like to oni of ife!

Femi Fani Kayode has joined all the dots into a line and came close to inserting the arrow head.

The answer to his riddle is simple. It is the Oga of the CSO, who sent Abiola's care-taker on a goose chase, that sanctioned the HIT on Abiola. Those dignitaries wouldn't have access Aso Rock with his consent. How much more to carry out an assassination on Nigerian soil. I hear the same Oga sneaked out of the country to the USA and returned 3 days before Abacha's death, under the pretext of shopping for weapons. But remember, the regime incurred the sanction of the West upon Nigeria so how could they, the USA, have welcomed and entertained an active member of the Military Junta...? Unless he went for debriefing at Langley.

But we will never know. Unfortunately, Fani may not see this but I'll mention it all the same. Nothing good comes easy. If Nigerians believe they have the right to know, then they should fight for that right. No one is gonna spoon feed them while they waste their days attending only to their Natural Bodily Functions.

This is nothing but bladderdash. The evidence of Zadok cannot become a basis of FFK truth. Abiola's death whether natural of manmade was a well deserved paid back coin. He dashed AWO's hope and Shagari's presidency; he was served with the same cup. June 12 nonsense.

The fact that Abiola openly challenged the military power all in the name of democracy which gives people like you to talk freely on media now,shows that he meant good for the nation.he might av enjoyed his share of the cake of politics as a bad person as you claimed but I assure you no human exist without stain.if you think questions should no be ask on his murder because you believe he was a bad person,then I tell you there are people who have affected Nigeria badly than Abiola who people like you worship as good leader. Thus that isn't a justification for murdering Abiola through whom peopl like you and I are free to express ourselves today withouth losing any of our relatives. Abiola is an hero!

FYI - FFK is simply a coward who is too feeble to say what needs to be said. America felt that the situation in Nigeria could have a serious adverse affect on Global oil prices if not brought under control. Abacha and MKO were not too high a price for them to pay in order to stabilize the situation. This is where the idea of 'balancing the equation' stems from.

We criticize femi fani kayode cos of dis well crafted write-up,femi might ve embezzled nd missaopripiately handled funds when he was serving as a minister,but d biggest problem is that nigerians don't care,we forget too quickly and we belive we don't need answers to certain things cos we feel they are not benefitial,we ignore the little things that count,most importantly some of us disregard history (imagine Mz Bombshell asking what MKO did for this country).its high time we realized that the politicians are aware of all these,they know nigerians forget easilly nd dat the average nigerian doesn't care about what is happening around him,they ve used dis opportunity to steal from us. but d bitter truth is dat they ve stolen money(which is fine by me)but we shouldn't let them steal d future from us,fellow nigerians its high time we started asking questions. MKO had skelentons in his cupboard but we can't deny d fact that he died fighting for his mandate(show me who doesn't ve secrets)Chief M.K.O Abiola sacrificed all 2 give us d democracy dis political criminals are bastardizing 2day..I don't think femi should be criticized for this write-up. #realitycheck4nigerians#

I agree with FFK. But many more "Abiolas" will still be frustrated or killed in Nigeria and other African countries. It is an open secret that the west will never allow Nigeria to reach her full potential because a buoyant and productive Nigerian economy will be a big threat to western capitalism.
As far as the west is concerned Nigerian economy must serve only two purposes:
1. Firstly as a perpetual supplier of crude oil to the west.
2. Secondly, as a perpetual market for western finished products by which they collect back from us, the money they used to buy the crude oil.
For this reason only dunces must be allowed to attain political power in Nigeria. Any Nigerian politician who is enlightened enough to want to free Nigeria from this shackle will be frustrated and if he proves too stubborn he will be taken down.
To maintain this agenda they have a willing ruling class of indigenous internal collaborators who will readily do the dirty job of stagnating their own country in return for remaining perpetually in power and siphoning Nigeria's wealth for their own personal uses.
What they did to the Republic of Congo is a good example of what they are doing to Nigeria.
Congo was once the darling country of Africa with so much diamonds and other mineral wealth. But when a visionary politician by the name of Patrice Lumumba started to have some bright ideas, he was brutally murdered under the direction of the western powers and a vision-less crook who called himself Mobutu Sese Seko was given full western support and he fully implemented the western agenda for his country which is to ensure that Congo never developed. Today her people wallow in a pitiful state of abject poverty..
The chief component of western strategy is to ensure that only fools and dunces who will ensure underdevelopment must be allowed to rule promising African countries.The only exemption to this strategy is South Africa and this is because of its white population who will suffer enormously if the noose is tightened. Therefore countless more "Abiolas" and "Lumumbas" will still be murdered in Nigeria and other African countries unless they stay away from politics. The wise are already staying away from politics. Who can blame them. They no wan die.
Nigeria unquestionably is being ruled by her enemies. Nothing dey happen! Only the Nigerian masses can set themselves free but they won't.

I've read tru several comments and its very unfortunate many Nigerians neither know d true meaning nor the cost of democracy. Well... I'll rather that you don't sacrifice anytin for naija cos d pple will be quick to forget and wouldn't even appreciate you. That's why I still wonder if nigeria could be any better
Secondly if we do not at some point think about d message forgetting d messenger, then 'change' will remain a mirage. I don't fucking care who fani kayode is, but from what my eyes and brain could tell me, this piece is enlightening and thought provoking. Kudos

This piece of information made a whole lot of sense and actually open my eyes to questions that need to be asked. Abiola fought a good fight from the beginning up till the end. We are enjoying democracy because of his life and may his soul continue to RIP.

Well said FFF, but you still have questions of your own that are yet to be answered.

Since you have access to this blog, why not use the same means to explain to us NIgerians, what you did with the aviation funds which you squandered. Like u right said truth is like a pack of straws, it'll surely be revealed some day.

Do the needy before then.

Linda won't post my comment with a link to Dr Ore Falomo's narrative of how MKO died.. so here are some excerpts.

It was about two weeks before he died(that I last saw him). But the visit before the last was more remarkable. As soon as they opened the door and Abiola saw me, he came towards me and we hugged. We sat and unlike before, none of the guards waited to listen to our discussion. We spoke Yoruba all the time. They objected to it at first, later on they agreed. That day he was behaving like he was in the spirit. I told him there was a rumour that he had been killed. He said, 'I know that I'm dead. They have dug the grave. They have put me in the grave except that they have not closed me up.' I asked, 'What happened? Have they injured you or injected you?' He said no, but that he just knew.
All these were strange, because in my previous visits, he was always asking about the things that were happening in the country. Then he started singing, 'Nearer my God to thee, nearer to thee.' He used to sing Christian songs. After signing the song in English, he started singing it in Yoruba. Then he got up; hugged me and we began to cry. It was very emotional. I tried to calm him down, because I didn't know what he had seen. All through this period, the guards did not come to say time was up. I told him I will tell the story to the people, which was normal after every visit.
He died shortly after the American delegation got to Aguda House by 3pm. According to the written press conference given by Ambassador Thomas Pickering, who led the American delegation, Abiola died between 3:20 and 3:40pm that day. Nobody told Abiola that he was going to have visitors that day. So, they woke him up and he just brushed his teeth and came out to meet with them. He had not had his lunch. These were facts borne out of the autopsy. His intestine was clear. They exchanged banters, he told Susan Rice, who was part of the delegation, what she wore the first day he met her. Pickering said Abiola's brain must be sharp to remember all that. According to them, their mission was to convince Abiola to denounce his mandate and go for another election. By then Abacha had gone, one of their problems had been solved. Abiola was left. They had brought that suggestion before and Abiola rejected it. So, their mission was unnecessary because they were not going to get him to say yes. It must have been for another purpose. When they came in, the chief guard that usually stayed with Abiola was not there because they didn't tell him some people would be visiting. Abiola came unaccompanied to that meeting. Of course, they had been told he was a tea drinker. They brought a special flask, which Hamza Al-Mustapha described as multi-dimensional. They poured themselves tea and poured tea for Abiola. There was no precedence of a visitor bringing tea for the host. It is unconventional. It is not done anywhere in the world. Not only did they bring it, they offered someone in detention tea, with no guard around.

You make him out to be a hero who died defending us?seriously?
So If GEJ had died while contesting the elections,he died for us and we owe his family and his memory something.indeed

What does Nigeria owe the poor souls who died fighting for their freedom in the civil war?and their unmarked graves and emaciated bones?or their relatives who died of kwashiorkor at home?

Keep deceiving yourselves.Abiola was a politician who contested for his own personal gain and died same!there is no evidence that he could have bettered the country.he did nothing for anyone but himself and his large family.just like any other politician.he was just the fall guy who challanged the powers that be in the military era.similar to ken saro wiwa but no!he wasn't fighting for a people or for Nigeria as a whole,far from that.it was for his own benefit like all politicians even in the 1st and second republic.lets not talk like we have not witnessed democracy before may 29th.
If he was a freedom fighter,why did he not protest when others were battered and degraded before him in the military era like Soyinka? No,it was only bad when he was denied of the presidential seat and now we are to venerate him? We are not lacking of martyrs in this country.so let's stop making fake ones.
