Sometimes last week I read with wild amazement in the news about Al mustapha being sentenced to death by hanging after spending close to a decade in Nigeria maximum prison.
And my question to Nigerians is does he really deserve to be hanged?? Was his crime that grievous?
Al Mustapha was the personal aid to the late general Sanni Abacha, he was speculated to have conspired and carried out the execution of late MKO abiola’s pretty wife. (a speculation that has now been made fact by the Lagos high court)
Here in London, there is mixed-feelings. I read somewhere that he is more of an asset to Nigeria than a mare liability (which the Lagos Court has reduced him as)
But do you really think he should be hanged?? alongside Lateef Sofolahan (his allegedly colleague in the plot.)
Lateef Sofolahan was said to be a close friend of Abiola (the philanthropist) but was later addressed and as a parasite and a green snake in a green grass for plotting the death of his friend’s wife and allegedly playing a significant role in the act.
Personally I think and believe it is within the confines of the court of law to fish out and punish offender, I do not by any mean condone evil or its off-springs, a government that does not punish offender will definitely come to ruin
But is Al Mustapha and Lateef Sofolahan really guilty as sentenced?? I hear they were only following order (or how else did they say it)
If really, he should die by hanging, when is it supposed to happen??
