He was convicted by Military Tribunal for coup plotting in June 1995 against the government of General Sani Abacha and was sentenced to jail.
Before his death, Shehu Yar’adua was married to Hajia Binta, with whom he had have five children, including Murtala Yar’Adua, former Nigerian Minister of State for Defence.
