Letter To President: Al-Mustapha Challenges Obasanjo To Public Debate

The former Chief Security Officer to late Head of State, Sani Abacha, Hamza Al-Mustapha, has challenged former president Olusegun Obasanjo to an open debate. This is in reaction to Obasanjo’s letter to President Goodluck Jonathan in which he alleged that he (Al-Mustapha) was released from prison to help the president train snipers to assassinate political opponents.

Al-Mustapha bore his mind and challenged the ex-president to a public debate on the allegations, while speaking to the Hausa Service of the Voice of America, VOA, which was monitored in Abuja on Wednesday.


While admitting that Obasanjo did not mention his name in the controversial open letter, he said that he knew the former president’s assertions were about him.

He expressed disappointment at the former president’s approach: “If he has anything to say on me, he should mention me directly or even challenge me and not make allusions.”

Al-Mustapha vehemently denied the allegations supposedly made by Obasanjo, claiming that training assassins to hunt the president’s political opponents contradicts his known passion for supporting people from Northern Nigeria especially within the military.

He said: “I read Obasanjo’s letter and subsequent comments by Nigerians, I would have responded immediately, but I was away in India receiving treatment.

“Perhaps it is Obasanjo and his cronies that are planning what he was insinuating.”

Al-Mustapha also said: “From 1974 to the present, a lot of things are buried with all sorts of lies, but all would be revealed one day.


“I urge everyone to pray for Obasanjo to accept my challenge for a public debate so that the truth will come out,” he said.

  1. The open debate u re calling for will be impossible. Mr Mustafa tel us ur own side of the story, tel us wat u claim has been kept hidden since 1974 to date. Tel us on ''black n white'' and stop waiting for open debate. If u can't write well hire someone to write while u tel it. All of u are the same; evils crying against wolves, kettles calling pot black. Some day nemesis will certainly catch up with each of u who have contributed or contributing to the failing of Nigeria project.

  5. In a developed countries..Obasanjo will be compelled to appear before the MPs committee on Home land security to explain what he knows and how he knew about the alleged training of snipers..Obasanjo who thinks everybody buys judgements as he did from 1999-2007 should not drag our judiciary to mud..
