She made the call on Thursday in reaction to President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to confer the highest national award on the late businessman.

Sonaiya, on her Twitter handle, @oluremisonaiya, asked what would happen to the perpetrators of the injustice.

“This posthumous honour done to #MKOAbiola means that the Nigerian Govt at the highest level now acknowledges that there was a travesty of justice over #June12.

“Now that the victim is finally getting “justice”, what happens to the perpetrators of the injustice?” Sonaiya tweeted.
