Abacha’s CSO Saved Me From Being R*ped As An Investigative Journalist – Abike Dabiri-Erewa Reveals (Updated: 9 months ago)


Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), has revealed that she was almost raped as an investigative journalist.

Abike said this after receiving an award at the maiden edition of the National Freedom of Information (FOI) Awards organised by the International Press Centre (IPC) and Media Rights Agenda (MRA), in Abuja.

According to her, the timely intervention of Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, the former chief security officer to the late Head of State, General Sani Abacha, saved her from being raped after she was arrested and locked up in a military facility in Apapa area of Lagos State.

She said this while sharing her experience as an investigative journalism.

Dabiri said, “Dare to venture, dare to succeed. As a journalist I was arrested at a point while doing investigative journalism.

“I was locked up in Apapa in one of the military facilities there. What saved me from being r*ped was Major Al-Mustapha who happened to come in at that point. So, you cannot afford to be afraid.”

Dabiri worked for the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) for 15 years, anchoring the weekly NTA News line programme before she became a lawmaker representing Ikorodu constituency.
