Colonel Muhammadu Abdullahi Wase (died June 1996) was military administrator of Kano State in Nigeria from December 1993 – June 1996.[1] He was appointed by General Sani Abacha in December 1993, and died in a plane crash in 1996.[2] In June 1995 Abdullahi Wase said that Nigerians, more than ever before, required adequate positive enlightenment on the activities of government, and that media houses should shun irresponsible journalism, which tended to cause dissent.[3]
