Fears for Nigerian 'plotters'
Saturday 01 July 1995
The tribunal, in session since 5 June, has been trying at least 23 military officers and civilians accused of plotting to overthrow the Nigerian leader, General Sani Abacha, on 1 March this year.
They have been charged with treason and conspiracy. But according to the local press, two of the defendants - General Obasanjo, who was head of state from 1976-79 and his former deputy, General Shehu Musa Yar'Adua - publicly accused by authorities of being involved in the failed coup, have already been sentenced.
