He was also the former chief security officer to late military dictator, Sani Abacha.
He has been vocal about the security challenges in the country, particularly during the tenure of former President Muhammadu Buhari.
During a keynote address at a roundtable discussion on “Contemporary security challenges and their effects on the 2023 general election,” Major Al-Mustapha expressed concerns about the proliferation of arms and hard drugs in Nigeria.
He warned that these issues could seriously jeopardize the upcoming elections, suggesting that Nigerians should question whether the stockpile of arms is intended to reinforce insurgency.
Major Al-Mustapha pointed out that the country is currently grappling with leadership deficits at various levels and stressed the need for the next leader to possess the ability to navigate the complex challenges facing Nigeria.
He cautioned that the nation is in a precarious situation, akin to a “keg of gunpowder,” demanding immediate attention and action.
