There are indications that the circumstances surrounding the sudden death of Mr. Abdullahi Abacha, son of a former Nigerian Head of State, late General Sani Abacha, may have been shrouded in secrecy.

In a tweet on Saturday, March 4, his elder sister, Fatimah Gumsu Abacha-Buni who announced the incident, had said Abdullahi died in his sleep in the early hours of the day.

“Innalillahi wa inna ilahi rajiun. I lost my younger brother, Abdullahi Sani Abacha. He died in his sleep. May Allah forgive his shortcomings and grant him jannatul firdous, Ameen. Please include him in your prayers”, she wrote.

However, contrary to the claim, fresh facts emerging from security circles revealed that Abdullahi, aged 31, was rushed home unconscious by three men in a tricycle on the ill-fated day.

He had reportedly checked into Tasquare Suites and Apartment, a hospitality facility within the highbrow Asokoro District of Abuja, not far away from his No.39 Nelson Mandela Asokoro family residence in company with two male friends and a lady whose identities were not disclosed.

But in a sad and sudden turn of events, sources hinted that Abdullahi reportedly dashed out of the hotel with a sign of pains and subsequently slumped by the road side.

Scudnews learnt from impeccable security sources that following a distress call, police operatives from Asokoro Division were dispatched to the residence where they met Abdullahi’s lifeless body.

Hajara Shehu, a retired Corporal of the Nigerian Army and an aide to the wife of the late General Sani Abacha, reportedly told police operatives who responded to the distress call at the residence that Abdullahi was rushed home unconscious by three men in a tricycle.

The police said two suspects have been arrested in connection with the incident, while a Samsung phone and belt belonging to the deceased were recovered.
