Abdul Abiola, one of the sons of late MKO Abiola, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime to investigate the circumstances that led to the death of his father.

Taking to his Twitter page, Mr Abiola said that it was time for Nigerians to know the truth as to the circumstances that led to the death of his father, asking the president to look into the archives.

“It’s time for the Nigerian people to know the truth as to what happened in the post-June 12, 1993 elections. And also, what led to the death of MKO Abiola and Kudirat Abiola and other unsung heroes,” he said.

This, he said, would help the president to unravel the mystery behind the death of the late MKO, stressing that it was only such a move that would bring about justice.

“I urge President Muhammadu Buhari to look into our country archives for justice to prevail,” he said.

The late Abiola was the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, which was annulled by the then head of state, Ibrahim Babangida.

He, however, declared himself the president in what was called the Epetedo declaration, but was subsequently arrested by the government of late military dictator, Sani Abacha, the then head of state.

Mr Buhari had declared June 12 as Democracy Day against May 29 which was the day it was being celebrated before.
