In 1995, a group of 9 Wahabist fundamentalists in Kano killed & beheaded a young Igbo Trader, Gideon Akaluka.
They lied that he desecrated the Holy Qur’an, Abacha assassinated all of them, except One.
Abacha didn’t play no games with political uprisings and religious extremism, He wanted the last of the 9 dead. Even with appeals and entreaties by the Northern Aristocracy that he would disappear & cause no trouble if pardoned, Abacha insisted on punishment.
So he was caught
It’s interesting to note that the person who led the group that begged for his life was Alhaji Umar Mutallab, the Father of the infamous Underwear Bomber, Farouk Mutallab, his 16th Child who is presently in prison in the USA. Mutallab was also a heavy sponsor of Islamic Activities in the 80s and 90s.
For those asking what happened to “The One” who was caught, Abacha spared him and sent him to Prison in Kano, later Sokoto and was later released and his mentors persuaded him to remember his royal roots and family name, urging that if he was that passionate about Islam, he could in University and study it.
All just to keep him grounded and busy with what he was really interested in, he was sent back to Sudan, where he had a degree previously, he got another one in 1997 with First Class Degree in Sharia and Islamic Studies with a strong elective in Arabic.
By May 1997, he was in banking as he joined the United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, then newly-privatized, as a Principal Manager II in the Credit Risk Management Division. You want to know how someone like him so unqualified got accelerated up the banking ladder sọ fast?
Check profile of Umar Mutallab.
He was the former CEO of UBA where ” the one” started working when he came back from Sudan and Umar Mutallab was the Chairman of First Bank, the bank where “the one ” Became Executive Director in 2005.
He is no other Person than the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, former Emir of Kanu, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
