Nigeria: Abacha did not loot Nigeria

Did Abacha loot Nigeria?: “How I wish I wielded some supernatural power! How I would have dealt with these three men – Mohammadu Buhari, Ibrahim Babangida, and Abdulsalami Abubakar! Thanks to those three, I learnt something new today: Contrary to what Nigerians have been told and read in the media, the late General Sani Abacha did not loot the treasury after all! The allegations against Abacha are baseless, and nothing but rumors!”
