Former military Head of State and elder statesman, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB) has responded to the news of his death flying around.
Some quarters of the media and social media were peddling the news of the death of the former military ruler.
Prince KassimAfegbua, the spokesperson for Babangida released a statement that said the former ruler was indeed in sound health and any news of his death was fake news.
According to the statement:
“It has become consistent fake news for quite some time now wishing IBB dead.
“IBB is very much alive. He just started attending to friends and associates who came to see him today, Sunday, 15th December, 2019 right here at his Minna Hilltop mansion.
“May Allah forgive those who wish IBB dead. God is the giver and taker of life, not humans.
“Death, as the irrevocable end of all creation, will surely come to everyone some day and at the appointed time and hour, but to deliberately spread fake news and wish someone dead, is to take humanity to another bizarre level.
“We wish to thank those who took time to reach out to us, home and abroad, to find out the truth.”
