For a while now, not much has been heard of former first lady, Maryam Abacha.
In this new photo of the widow of Sani Abacha, a former dictatorial President of Nigeria from 1993 to 1998, Mariam is spotted with her billionaire Cameroonian son-in-law, Mohamadou Bayero Fadil. Mohamadou is married to Gumsu Abacha.
Recall that after the death of Sani Abacha in June 1998, Maryam Abacha attempted to leave Nigeria with suitcases filled with money. She was arrested, placed on 24-hour surveillance, and banned from leaving Nigeria.
In 1999 Maryam Abacha said that her husband acted in the good will of Nigeria; an official of the Nigerian government said that Maryam Abacha said that to convince the government to grant her a reprieve, as the president, Olusegun Obasanjo, had been jailed by Sani Abacha. As of 2000 Maryam Abacha remained in Nigeria. Maryam and Sani Abacha had three daughters and six sons. Maryam Abacha’s eldest surviving son is Mohammed Abacha.
