We fought for Nigeria’s democracy — Men who hijacked aircraft in 1993

Men who hijacked aircraft on June 12, 1993 have spoken up about the struggles and how they were abandoned by the government.

Speaking in Yoruba, one of the men, Adebayo Ekunsumi, in an interview with The PUNCH, said he and his colleague collaborated because they needed M.K.O Abiola to be installed as president, which led to hijacking a plane.

Benneth Daisi said that before the hijacking of the plane, the election was already held and was judged credible by Nigerians before it was annulled. He added that because of the annulment of the election, the entire nation was thrown into chaos which led them to fight for the stability of democracy in Nigeria.

The men said they spent 10 years of their lives in prison in Niger, yet the government abandoned them and they are struggling without any provisions made for them.
