This year makes it about 24 years that Abacha lost his first, Ibrahim Sani who died on a plane crash in 1996 with other 13 friends of his including the younger brother to the richest man in Africa today, – Aliko Dangote.

Ibrahim Sani was very wealthy just as a son of one of the top corrupt leaders then.

Ibrahim who was just 28 years old was a lawyer as well a business man who was into a series of business deals.

The Tragic Death

 

 

On that fateful day, 17th of January, 1996, Ibrahim and his friends were going on a jolly ride from Lagos to Kano for a party and family engagement.

He was travelling in the Nigerian Air Force presidential Falcon jet in the company of 13 other friends when just minutes to the landing at the Aminu Kano International Airport, the aircraft crashed and exploded mysteriously.

Ibrahim was with Funmi, his Yoruba girlfriend and a younger brother of Aliko Dangote named Bello, now the richest black in the world.

Bello Dangote’s death was described as a major shock and huge loss with Dangote describing him as the closest person to Dangote in the group and a ‘great thinker and visionary.’

The crash shook the country, and even the most avowed enemies of Abacha sympathized with him.
