ABDUL, son of the late winner of the annulled 1993 presidential election, Bashorun MKO Abiola, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to make good his promise of bringing the killers of his mother, Kudirat Abiola to justice.
He made the call via his Twitter handle, @AbdulMKOAbiola, on Saturday.
He urged the President to bring those who made his mother a martyr at the age of 44 to book, adding that his confidence in Buhari’s ability to bring his mother’s killer to justice was unwavering.
Abdul said he could recall the promise made by Buhari in this regard at the early stages of the President’s campaign for second term, describing him as a man of honour who he knows would fulfill his promise.
He said: “At the early stages of your second presidential campaign, I remember the things you said. So I know that you are a man of justice and equity, hence, my confidence in you.
“As this administration comes to an end, I would like to call on President Muhammad Buhari to investigate the murder of my mother Kudirat Abiola.
“Her anniversary comes up in exactly a month from now. The confession of her murderer Sergeant Rogers must be investigated
“The Oputa Panel is on YouTube and the court statements of your Vice-President are available serving as facts. “Since the Vice-President ceased to be the Attorney General of Lagos State the case has suffered a major setback.” It will be recalled that Kudirat, wife of the late Chief MKO Abiola, was assassinated on June 4, 1996.
Abdul called on the President to name her martyr of democracy.
“In the women hall of fame, Buhari’s government should name her “the Martyr of Democracy,” he said.
