About Ibrahim Babangida:

Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida is a retired Nigerian Army General who was President of Nigeria under military rule.

General Babangida was a key player in most of the military coups in Nigeria (July 1966, February 1976, December 1983, August 1985, December 1985 and April 1990). There is evidence of severe human rights abuses during his regime.
