KUDIRAT’S MURDER: Judgment day beckons on Al-Mustapha, Sofolahan

Kudirat and Al-Mustapha
Major Hamza  al-Mustapha, former chief security officer to the late General Sani Abacha, and a  co-accused to know fate over the killing of the late Kudirat Abiola.
Twelve years ago when they were arraigned before a Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja over alleged complicity in the murder of Alhaja Kuditrat Abiola, the  wife of the billionaire businessman cum politician, Bashorun M.K.O. Abiola, it appeared that judgment in the case will not come.

However, tomorrow (Monday, 30/01/2012) will be a significant day for the nation’s judiciary as well as the family of the late Kudirat Abiola, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha and his co-accused, Alhaji Lateef Sofolahan, when Justice Mojisola Dada, sitting in High Court, Lagos Division, will deliver judgment on the controversial case. Whichever  way the pendulum of the judgment swings, it will either add more injuries to the 12 years Al-Mustapha and his co-accused have spent in prison or make them free men.
