Abiola’s Sons Clash over Properties

20296

Abdul Mumuni, the youngest son of the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, late Chief MKO Abiola, on Friday accused his elder brothers of leaving their father’s landed properties and businesses to rot away.

He accused them, especially Kola, of playing god with the estate and other properties of the late business mogul.

He said: “I want my brothers, Kola, Deji, and Agboola to stop playing god with our father’s properties and abandoned projects and investments,” Mumuni said in a statement.

“I, my brothers and sisters totaling 40 children of Abiola are not fighting with them. We don’t have a bone to pick with them. But we need to step out of the past and of our father’s shadow.

“Kola, Deji and Agboola have been peddling lies in the media about my efforts to bring about changes to the dwindling fortunes of the Abiola family.

“I am ashamed just like my other brothers and sister to see that after MKO Abiola’s death, many of his legacies appear to be in shambles. No, it shouldn’t be like that. That is not what MKO Abiola stood for while he was alive.”

He appealed to Nigerians to “prevail on Kola and his cohorts to stop using the police to harass me or those who are working with me to restore the lost glory of the Abiola family.”
