Today --- 24 years ago, Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola contested for June 12, 1993 elections and was 'declared' winner by many Nigerians as he had the highest votes, compared to his opponent.

The celebration of Abiola's presumed victory lasted for two hours as Justice Bassey Ikpeme gave a ruling that the election should be stopped.

However, MKO declared himself president in 1994 and was arrested on the orders of military ruler, Sani Abacha.

He died July 7, 1998 in Prison ..allegedly of natural causes.
