Murtala Mohammed - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (766 words)
General Murtala Ramat Muhammed (November 8, 1938–February 13, 1976) was a military ruler (Head of the Federal Military Government) of Nigeria (1975–1976).
Murtala Muhammad imposed the authority of the federal government in areas formerly reserved for the states, restricting the latitude exercised by state governments and their governors in determining and executing policy.
Murtala Mohammed was, however, killed on February 13, 1976 in an abortive coup attempt when his car was ambushed in traffic in Lagos.
