In this Monday Aug. 8, 2011 photo, Nigeria's former Chief security officer, Maj. Hamza Al-Mustapha, center, waves after his trial at the federal high court in Lagos, Nigeria. Maj. Hamza Al-Mustapha served as the right-hand man of Nigeria's feared and final military dictator, suppressing dissent through fear and once boasting of even having a "license to kill. Now, after nearly 14 years in prison, he's finally facing trial on charges of orchestrating the murder of a political rival's wife, reopening old wounds from an era of terror in Nigeria.
