It is with a heavy heart that we announce the death of Abdullahi Abacha, the 36-year-old son of the late Nigerian military dictator, Sani Abacha. Abdullahi, who was the second to the last son of the military dictator, died on Friday night in Abuja.
According to a family source, Abdullahi died peacefully in his sleep at the family's residence on Nelson Mandela Street in Abuja. The source said that the death of the young man was unexpected and is a source of great sorrow for the family.
“He was hale and hearty last night, but was found dead this morning. He died peacefully in his sleep,” said the source.
Abdullahi was born in 1984, the same year his father became the President of Nigeria. During the five-year reign of his father, Abdullahi and his siblings lived in the Presidential Palace in Abuja. After the death of his father in 1998, Abdullahi and his family were forced to move out of the Presidential Palace and relocated to their Nelson Mandela Street residence.
Abdullahi was a young man with a bright future ahead of him. He had dreams of making a career in the military, just like his father before him. He was also an avid football fan and had recently begun attending church regularly. His death has been met with shock and sadness in the Nigerian community.
Our condolences go out to the Abacha family during this difficult time. We hope that Abdullahi will rest in peace and that his family will find comfort in knowing that he is now in a better place. Abdullahi Abacha's death is a reminder that life is short and fragile and that we should cherish every moment of it. May his soul rest in peace.
