Lagos govt calls for details of MKO Abiola’s death

Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hon. Kehinde Bamigbetan, on Monday demanded disclosure of incidents leading to the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 election, late Bashorun MKO Abiola.

The commissioner made the demand while speaking during this year’s International Archives Day celebration organised by the State Records and Archives Bureau (LASRAB) at Alausa, Ikeja.

Bamigbetan stated that public disclosure of activities that led to the death of Abiola will help confirm or deny the claim that he died after taking tea during the meeting.

“As we get ready to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the death of late Chief M.K. O Abiola, it is totally remarkable and evolutionary day.

“It is very evolutionary to demand that the records of that day when he took that tea; the transcription of his deliberation, it is now overripe for public consumption,” Bamigbetan said.
