MKO Abiola Never Traded Drugs While Alive, Says Family

The family of late Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola (MKO) has denounced a report that the late philanthropist and June 12 hero traded drugs while he was alive.?

?A journalist David Hundeyin authored an article titled: “Bola Ahmed Tinubu: From Drug Lord To Presidential Candidate” where he declared that Abiola traded hard drugs when he was alive.?
?
But in a statement signed by Yushau Olalekan Abiola, on behalf of Kudirat Abiola’s children, the late MKO’s family said Hundeyin’s baseless allegation uncovered him as a hack journalist who had inscribed his name in the sand of fake news.?
?
The declaration added that the journalist was only rabble-rousing and planned to drag the legacy of the celebrated winner of the June 12 presidential election in the mud.?
?
It further noted that neither the late MKO nor his companies’ bank accounts were ever frozen as ‘erroneously’ claimed by Hundeyin, adding that Abiola was so respected and dignified that he was the only Nigerian to have been so far authorized to enter the United States of America without his international passport.?
?
The family marveled “why the writer would stoop so low to have imitated a baseless allegation that first appeared in Daily Beast, an American tabloid in 2015, where John Campbell who had formulated it could not concretely justify the rumor when he was met face to face by the Abiola family.?
