Sani Abacha

Sani Abacha (September 20th, 1943 – June 8th, 1998) was a Nigerian Army general and politician who served as the de facto President of Nigeria from 1993 to 1998.

Abacha's government was accused of human rights abuses, especially after the hanging of Ogoni activist Ken Saro-Wiwa by the Oputa Commission (only one of several executions of Ogoni activists opposed to the exploitation of Nigerian resources by the multinational petroleum company, Royal Dutch Shell Group); Moshood Abiola and Olusegun Obasanjo were jailed for treason, and Wole Soyinka charged in absentia with treason.
