The wife of the former Head of State, General Sani Abacha has come out in defense of her late husband.
Maryam Abacha, in an interview to mark the twenty two years anniversary of her husband’s death, said her late husband was not seen as a thief until he died.
The widow of the former military leader, who had been quiet all this while, spoke on the alleged recovered monies her late husband was said to have stashed away in foreign banks.
According to her, “The truth about the recovered monies will soon come to light.”
Maryam, who wondered why her late husband was not seen as a thief until his death, accused the people of Kano of betraying her husband.
“What is this amount of money after 22 years you say oh we have found this amount of money and we are 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. They will kneel down like America is kneeling down now. Anybody that is evil will kneel down just like this corona has come to shut this world.”
The former First Lady disclosed that there are lots of people her husband helped in Kano that are no longer greeting her for no reason.
“He worked in Kano and he planted Kano people, but there are people he helped a lot but they are not even greeting me now for no reason. They just hate us. But why? It is Haram and Allah is watching us”, she stated
