The former head of state, who was known to many as a ‘no-nonsense’ man, actually had a softer approach to children, as this photo below depicts.
The former dictator, was actually smiling, (he rarely did that) while holding onto his grandson Abdullahi. Sani Abacha’s daughter, Gumsu Sani Abacha, shared the picture on her Instagram page, with the caption: “Biggest #tbtnever seen before pic. See the resemblance. . My papa na fine man wallahi. With Abdullahi Sani Abacha” Seems like the smile fitted him better.
