Nigeria: Abacha Days

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria

Musings of a Naijaman comments on two recent events in Nigeria that remind him of the dark dictatorships days of the late General Abacha [1]…”This style of guttersnipe communication, where any government criticism was met with a barrage of blistering personal attacks was honed under the Abacha government, and for those of us who lived through those dark days, seeing a return to such tactics under a so-called democratic government was sad.”
