Dead Or Alive: 4 Notable High Profile Politicians That Have Disappeared Under Nigeria President Buhari’s Regime

It often starts with a media trial, plenty of public interest in the individuals and then, silence.

This silence would last very a long time until no one hears about them again or they just altogether disappear from the scene.

These politicians were once raising dust concerning the regime and ruling power of President Buhari but they have all just been taken care of. I believe in the ‘President’s Way’

Here are four such cases.

1. Zakzaky

In December of 2015, a few enthusiasts of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (generally called Shiite sect) led by Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky clashed with troopers in Zaria, Kaduna State.

Warriors depicted the occurrence as endeavors by individuals from the faction to kill Army Chief Tukur Buratai who was driving through town when the Shiites mounted their barricade.

A modest bunch of Shiites apparently lost their lives amid the conflict.

Shiite pioneer Zakzaky was quickly arrested by law implementation after his sanctuary was annihilated. Nobody has gotten notification from Zakzaky once more


2. Nnamdi Kanu

Pro-Biafran group leader Nnamdi Kanu's whereabouts have been the source of increasing speculation in recent weeks, after a military surge in his home city of Umuahia and the surrounding areaPro-Biafran group leader Nnamdi Kanu’s whereabouts have been the source of increasing speculation in recent weeks, after a military surge in his home city of Umuahia and the surrounding area


The leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) had stirred secessionist anger against the federal government before and after he was granted bail in April 2017.

However, on September 14, 2017, soldiers stormed Kanu’s home in Umuahia and it would be the last day anyone heard from the eccentric separatist.

There are reports that Kanu has fled to the UK where he still retains a citizenship, but no one has been able to prove that story. It’s been a month now and Kanu remains missing.

3. Dasuki

Former National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki has been kept in jail since 2015 over an alleged mismanagement of defence funds amounting to over $2.1B.

He’s had a couple of court appearances and has been denied bail a couple of times, but it’s been eons since anyone last saw him in the flesh.

He was supposed to appear in court today to testify in the case of former PDP spokesperson Olisa Metuh, but according to sundry reports, he turned down the subpoena.

4. Maina

Former chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina

Famously referred to as the ‘pension thief’, Abdulrasheed Maina was controversially reinstated to the federal civil service after he was fired in 2013 for defrauding pensioners to the tune of billions of Naira. After President Buhari fired him on October 23, Maina disappeared into thin air. There’s reportedly a led manhunt for him.
