Mr. Abdul Abiola, the son of late Kudirat Abiola, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to make good his promise by bringing those who killed his mother to justice.

Abiola said this on Saturday via his Twitter handle, @AbdulMKOAbiola.

He urged the President to bring those who made Kudirat, his mother a martyr at the age of 44 to book, adding that he was confident in Buhari to bring justice in the case of his mother’s death.

“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.”

In the social media thread, he lamented that the case of his mother’s death had suffered a setback since the then former Attorney General of Lagos State, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was no longer the AG in the state. He also called on President Buhari to name her “the Martyr of Democracy,” in “In the Women hall of Fame”

Recalled that Kudirat, the wife of late Chief MKO Abiola, was assassinated on June 4, 1996, by unknown assassins allegedly linked to the Abacha junta.
