I Have No Regrets For My Actions – Hamza Al-Mustapha


Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, the Chief Security Officer to former military leader, Late Gen. Sani Abacha has said he does not regret his actions and the consequences they brought.

Al-Mustapha said this while speaking as a guest lecturer during the closing ceremony of the ‘Press Week’ of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, Enugu State Chapter.

Al-Mustapha was arrested for the murder of late Kudirat Abiola and was consequently sentenced to death by hanging by a Lagos High Court in 2002.

But in 2013, he was discharged and acquitted by the Lagos Division of the Court of Appeal.

“What I went through from 1998 to 2002 was nothing compared to what I went through from 2002 to 2015.

“While I was in service, I stood by my oath to serve and defend my country. I don’t have any regrets. Regret does not exist in my life. In the absence of pain there is no gain so it is all experience. I thank God for everything. Also, I don’t have any regrets for not exploiting my position to enrich myself – it is better for me to suffer than to destroy Nigeria.”

He also said Nigerian leaders are termites who have eaten the country to emptiness.

“Nigeria is not a patriotic country – Nigeria’s leaders are like termites. They eat and eat until the fabric of the wood is gone; they eat everything until the inside becomes empty.

“When you look at them they are the same termites they were yesterday,” he said.
