Episode Notes

It has been said that "absolute power corrupts absolutely", and this statement is not strange to Nigerians who have lived through different authoritarian regimes at the helm of affairs. However, between 1993 and 1998 one particular regime stood out.
He was known for every vice, human rights violation, corruption, different "appetites", and one that Nigeria still benefits from, money laundering.
On the pilot episode of Long Story Short, we review one of Nigeria's infamous dictators, the story of General Sanni Abacha. A controversial figure in Nigeria's political history, Liwa changes the lens on how Abacha should be seen by Nigerians.
