  • Abacha Injected Yar’Adua With Virus That Killed Him- Obasanjo
  • A former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo,
    revealed on Saturday that the late dictator, Gen.
    Sani Abacha wanted him, the late Shehu Musa
    Yar’Adua and the June 12 hero, the late Moshood
    Abiola, dead while in prison.
    He stated this at a dinner programme organised
    by an inter-denominational Christian organisation,
    Christ The Redeemer’s Friends International of the
    Redeemed Christian Church of God, Lagos
    Province 39 Chapter.
    The former president alleged that Yar’Adua was
    poisoned by Abacha’s killer squad, adding that he
    was to be next victim, but that he was saved by
    God’s divine grace.
    Obasanjo said, “Two people had earlier told me
    Abacha promised that three of us would not come
    out of prison or detention alive; myself. Shehu
    Yar Adua and MKO Abiola. And two of them did
    not come out alive. So, that I came out alive,
    maybe God has a purpose. And therefore if the
    purpose is for me to serve the people and by so
    doing, serve God, then so be it.
    “Abacha claimed that I was plotting a coup. I
    wasn’t the first to be arrested. When Shehu
    (Yar’Adua) was arrested, I tried to plead for his
    release. When Abacha said he didn’t know about
    Shehu’s arrest, I said to him, ‘the number two
    man in this country cannot be arrested without
    you knowing.’ He then said he would go and find
    “In Abacha’s plan, he left God out of it and
    because he left God out of his plan, it (his
    government) eventually failed. There is God’s
    hand in the life of each and every one of us and
    every institution. I believe that very well.
    “When I was arrested, they took me to a house in
    Ikoyi (Lagos) and that became my abode (I was)
    in isolation, for three months.
    “In the meantime, there were national and
    international pressures for my release, (former US)
    President Jimmy Carter was one of the world
    leaders that came to ask for my release. Some
    African leaders like Yoweri Museveni and Robert
    Mugabe came. I believe it was because of those
    pressures that I was released from isolation in
    Ikoyi where I was under house arrest.”
    Obasanjo described the day he was court-
    martialled and sentenced as one of the ‘worst
    days in his life.’
    He said, “I must say that, that day, in a split
    second, it felt like the worst day in my life. What
    flashed through my mind was that I was forever
    ruined. I asked myself, ‘What did I do to deserve
    this? Is this what I get for serving Nigeria?’ But
    then, I told myself again that this was not done to
    me by Nigeria, but that one man did it for me.”
    Obasanjo said he and Yar’Adua were detained in
    Jos and Port Harcourt prisons because they were
    the best prisons in the country at the time.
    He said, “I was to go to Jos (prison) and
    Yar’Adua was to go to Port Harcourt (prison). In
    Jos, I was visited by my colleagues, including
    Yakubu Danjuma, Joe Garba, Domkat Bali, many
    of our colleagues, and then family members and
    “Then a decision was made that I was becoming
    too popular in Jos prison and I had to be
    transferred to. Yola prison which is a native
    authority prison and I don’t need to tell you what
    life was there.
    “In Jos prison, before I was transferred to Yola
    prison, they had decided that Shehu Yar’Adua and
    myself should be poisoned. So, they took him
    from Port Harcourt prison to Abakaliki. In the
    process, he was injected with the virus that killed
    him. The same was supposed to be done to me.
    The man who came took me from the prison to a
    guest house in the GRA in Jos, said, ‘We know
    you have problem with cholesterol so I have to
    take your blood for a test.’ Then I said, ‘Not on
    your life, I don’t have any problem of cholesterol.’
    “I was slightly diabetic. But God had taken care of
    it because I was checking my blood sugar almost
    on a daily basis and it had become better than
    normal. So, I refused him (the man) touching me
    with anything. So, they took me to Yola and he
    said, ‘when you get to where you are going, we
    will come again.’”
    The former president said he was saved from
    being poisoned by a doctor and specialist in the
    “The doctor was a professional man in charge of
    the General Hospital in Yola. He listened to my
    case that I needed special food because I was
    diabetic. He said the specialist would come to see
    me. The specialist turned out to be somebody
    from Okeogun in Oyo State. Two, he was a
    Baptist, and three, he had heard about me and
    knew me. So, he looked at me and said, ‘Don’t let
    anybody touch you with anything.’
    “Within three weeks the man that came to me
    earlier returned again and said he wanted to take
    my blood. I said, ‘No, you have to get my doctor
    to come and take my blood for you.’ That was the
    arrangement between me and the doctor. And my
    doctor came and he brought a syringe and he
    took my blood and gave it to him. He now asked
    the man, ‘When would we have the result?’The
    man said, ‘Within 24 hours of my getting to
    Abuja.’I haven’t heard the result till today.”
    Obasanjo said after his release from prison, he
    gave into pressure to contest for the presidency
    and he ended up becoming president for two
    terms by the grace of God. “Nigeria that was a
    pariah state became a darling (of the world).
    “What is the lesson for me? I developed in prison
    but unfortunately I was not able to sustain it.
    Maybe because there was nothing else to do in
    prison except to pray and fast. I used to fast a
    lot. On three occasions, I fasted for seven days,
    no water, no food… a unique power was given to
    me by God.
    “In all these, God did not leave me alone, and I
    know that. I say to people that God has never let
    me alone nor disappointed me in spite of all. I am
    a sinner. It is not because of my goodness, but
    because of the grace of God, and the grace of God
    continues to abound.”
