Why Did General Muhammadu Buhari Jail Dr. Alex Ekwueme As Vice In 1983, Instead Of The Shehu Shagari Who Was President?

Shagari, Ekwueme & Buhari.

I just heard this morning that in 1983, then General Muhammadu Buhari jailed former Vice President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme, Who was Vice to Alhaji Shehu Shagari and I didn’t understand why?


Jailing a Vice President after he took over that government through the instrumentality of a COUP, instead of the President on whose shoulders the responsibilities of government was, is incomprehensible to me and I have to ask men of wisdom to come to my aid here.

WHAT WAS THE REASON GENERAL MUHAMMADU BUHARI JAILED ALEX EKWUEME AND NOT SHEHU SHAGARI IN 1983?

NB: I just got to know about this early this morning and because I don’t have the full details, I had to seek knowledge
