SATURDAY, February 13, 2022 was the 48th anniversary of the assassination of General Murtala Mohammed by Col. B. S. Dimka. As Head of State, Murtala was immensely popular because he was taking knee-jerk military measures to rid Nigeria of the “rot and corruption” of his predecessor, General Yakubu Gowon.
