Singer 2baba Idibia has caught the attention of Nigerians in the online community after sharing a fresh and personal perspective as it regards the late Sani Abacha.
The veteran entertainer recently took to his Instastory channel with a submission in which he made an attempt to give reasons for Abacha’s notorious looting during his regime as head of state.
For 2baba, if Abacha had the genuine intent of stealing funds, then it would have been almost impossible for anyone to recover the stolen funds.
