My late husband never stole – Maryam Abacha



On Sunday, former First Lady Maryam Abacha described the discovery of looted funds by her Late husband, the late Head of State, Sani Abacha as outright lies.

$311million was  reclaimed from the United States and the Island of Jersey by the Federal government as part of looted funds from the family of the late military Head of State.

The ex-first lady stated this while chatting with journalists in Kano, adding that it was evil to speak ill of the dead.

She said: “How come this man was not a thief until he died? What is this amount of money after 22 years you say oh we have found this amount of money and we’re bringing it back?

“It is a shame to tell lies about 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 coronavirus has come to shut this world.”

Mrs. Abacha also said most of the people that stopped greeting her were assisted by her husband when they were in need.

“He worked in Kano and he planted Kano people in several places. 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,” the ex-first lady added.
