Mr. Jamiu Biodun Abiola, son of the late pro-democracy activist, the late Kudirat Abiola, lamented that those who came to power in his late mother’s struggle, especially in the South West, have largely abandoned the family.
Daily Trust Saturday reports that Alhaja Kudirat Abiola, popularly known as Kudirat Abiola, was assassinated on June 4, 1996 in Lagos, while she was fighting for the release of her husband, the late Moshood Abiola, also known as MKO Abiola.
Speaking on the 26th anniversary of his mother’s death, Jamiu said things were “very bumpy” and the current situation had made him even more sad.
He said, “Look at my mother that we’re talking about. She was killed exactly 26 years ago and none of her children have been appointed commissioners by those who came to power through her struggle. However, I remain a fan of this government and I believe that things will work out.
When asked if he thought his mother’s killers would ever be brought to justice, he replied, “I don’t think most people are interested in finding her killers. There is so much mystery surrounding this subject. Where is Roger?
He also said the only person who made efforts to get justice in his mother’s case was Vice President Yemi Osinbajo when he was Attorney General of Lagos State.
