My dear , you are wrong on this . Diya was just a figure head during abacha's reign. He didn't have a say. Abacha was all and all. He couldn't have resigned due to the dictatorship governance of Abacha as that would have posed a threat to Abacha and he would have been killed. Also remember Abacha arrested him on the ground that he planned a coup to overthrow his government and this was not true. He was not just feeling comfortable with the man probably he was not happy with his governance and he knew a lot and he just wanted to get rid of him. This man was sentenced to death but he was saved by grace. Abacha died and Abdulsalam took over. It was Abdulsalam that granted him amnesty. Please read this below:

So sad, for a man that achieved so much, only few lines of write up was attributed to him! Human and life!
