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.
