Mohammed Abacha's Charges Dropped By Federal Government

The late Nigerian born Afrobeat musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti would have called it "gofment Magic". Indeed, the Federal government of Nigeria has been reported to have dropped the charges against the son of erstwhile military dictator, Sani Abacha, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

Mohammed has been accused of  receiving stolen property worth N100.38 billion believed to have been stolen by his father when he was the Nigerian head of state from 1993 to 1998. Mohammed was said to have been a key tool in the laundering business of his late father.
His son, Mohammed, played a major role in the Abacha administration and is believed to have helped his father launder a lot of the stolen funds.

This development will definitely get a lot of tongues wagging as preparations for the 2015 elections hot up. Mohammed is seen as a big contender for the seat of government in Kano state. With a facebook page tagged the man with the plan

Mohammed Abacha seems set to fulfill his dream of becoming the number one citizen of Kano state. A post on the page posted last July reads  

"My brother n sister,Thank u vry mch 4ur support,patience n welwishesm.By Godwillin victory wil b ours come 2015,Thank You very mch n wil keep on prayn4sucess n positive change."

He might be flying the flag of the People's democratic party which is the opposition party in Kano state with Governor Rabiu Kwankwanso as governor. In 2011, Mohammed sought the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) governorship ticket for Kano State, but lost in controversial circumstances. It was gathered that Mohammed’s proposed defection may be part of a larger political strategy by some Presidency officials to cut Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso to size.
