The Leaked Video Of Gen. Diya Oladipo Pleading With Gen. Sanni Abacha – Oputa Panel
A piece of Nigeria’s history. The Oputa Panel’s hearing. Leaked video
Gen. Diya was crossed examined at the Human Rights Violation Commission (HRVIC) on the coup plan 1997 to overthrow Gen. Sanni Abacha, He bluntly denied the fact that he was part of the plan but he admitted he knew about the plan. He further explained that he was afraid of being killed by the Coup Master Planner if he revealed the plan.
He denied pleading with Gen. Sanni Abacha but was shocked to see the video where he truly knelt down before Gen. Sanni Abacha as tendered by the Lawyer.
Gen. Diya Oladipo then was appointed as Chief of Defense Staff. He was appointed Chief of General Staff in 1993 and Vice Chairman of the Provisional Ruling Council in 1994. In 1997 Diya and dissident soldiers in the military allegedly planned to overthrow the regime of Sani Abacha. The alleged coup was uncovered by forces loyal to Abacha, and Diya and his cohorts were jailed. Diya was tried in a military tribunal, and was given the death penalty.
The Messenger KILLED!
Eighteen years ago, on November 10, 1995, the military junta of late General Sanni Abacha, via a military tribunal, sentenced to death by hanging, Mr. Ken Saro Wiwa and nine other Ogoni activists over their struggle against deprivation and environmental damages meted their ancestral land and heritage.
This verdict, was hastily implemented, without provision for an appeal, even when local and international humanitarian organizations pleaded with the head of state, Gen. Sanni Abacha, to spare their lives.
Less than three years after snuffing out their innocent lives, Sanni Abacha died in inexplicable circumstances, on the 8th of June, 1998.
Below is a tribute, by Kreative Kay, in honour of Ken Saro Wiwa and nine (9) other Ogoni activists, who paid the supreme sacrifice for standing up for the truth:
The writer cannot be a mere storyteller; he cannot be a mere teacher;
He cannot merely X-ray societys weaknesses, its ills, its perils.
He or she must be actively involved in shaping its present and its future.
He wasn’t a mere LEADER, He was actively involved in the OGONI struggle;
And the Niger Delta Activism!
It is 18 years today, but One DAY, an AVERAGE Ogoni Son or Daughter will
realize the much GOOD you did for US!
And for you who don’t know, “You may kill the MESSENGER but you cant kill
MUCH RESPECT, Sir Kenule Saro-Wiwa!

He loves, respects and adores the woman that helped bring these bundles of joy to life.
Even when ugly circumstances forces a separation, his love, commitment and sense of responsibility to these innocent hearts remains steadfast.
He gradually goes grey, watching with joy and pride as the once little creatures become fully independent adults.
He is human, every inch of it, with feelings, and yes shortcomings and human weaknesses.
He is called “Dad“, “Father“, “Papa“, “Daddy“, and to someone very special, “Husband“.
He is “The Man“.
The Pillar of the Home and the “Shock Absorber”.
To the innocent souls looking up to him, He Is The Solution To Any Inexplicable Circumstance.
