Kudirat Abiola: I Have A Secret Letter That Will Tell All – Al-mustapha

Compelled by what he described as the stage-managing of his travails in the hands of un-named Nigerian elite, the former Chief Security Officer (CSO) to late Gen. Sani Abacha, Major Almustapha (rtd) has revealed that he has a letter in his possession that will assist the Supreme Court Judges in the case being brought against him by the Lagos state government.

Al-Mustapha in an interview with TV 360, which is in the possession of LEADERSHIP Friday said from the moment his boss died, charges were contrived and proffered against him as an attempt to nail him. This is even as he said the option to deal with him was to ‘’elongate his torture till he perishes naturally.

Al-Mustapha said that the letter in his possession, purportedly written by the Special Investigation Panel (SIP) will shed more light on what went wrong in the past and help set the record straight.

He explained that there are facts of all what was sponsored againsthim in the book.

This revelation maybe against the backdrop of Lagos state government’s leave to appeal the conviction and reversing his death by hanging handed out on Almustapha by Justice M.A Dauda on January 30, 2012.

According to his lawyer, Mr. Joseph Dauda, SAN, the ex-CSO had asked that the CJN be petitioned to determine the application for leave to appeal brought by LASG.

Subsequently, on January 12, 2017, when LASG lawyer moved for the leave, Almustapha’s counsel did not kick a gainst it, thus prompting the Supreme Court presided over by the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen, to direct the state to file their notice of appeal within 30 days of the date of the grant of the application.

The ruling followed an application that was moved on behalf of the state by Mrs. Osunsanya Oluwayemisi, a Senior State Counsel in the Lagos Ministry of Justice.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
