A close friend and minister in the government of the late dictator Sani Abacha says he murdered his former boss. The former minister, Jerry Useni, was party to several plots against his boss. The first two failed, but they finally got Abacha with a poisoned apple delivered by two prostitutes. Abacha was buried the day he died and an autopsy was never performed. He was thought to have died of a heart attack. Abacha, an extremely corrupt dictator even by African standards. was unpopular with many of his henchmen.
