“IBB, alive and healthy”, his spokesperson says.
Former Military Head of State, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, IBB (Rtd), is not dead contrary to rumour on social media.
IBB’s spokesperson, Kassim Afegbua, on Sunday rubbished rumour of his death.
The social media had been awashed with rumour of IBB’s death.
Afegbua, in a statement, said the former head of state is alive and healthy, saying that it had become consistent fake news for quite some time now for people wishing IBB dead.
“The “fake news bill” would be a suitable response to this category of fake news carrier. IBB is very much alive and bubbling. 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. He is full of life and in his characteristic bubbling mood.Kassim Afegbua
“May Allah forgive those who wish him 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. May Allah forgive them.Kassim Afegbua
“Babangida, by the special grace of Allah, the omniscient and omnipotent One, shall live to fulfill his journey and destiny in life, to the consternation of those who are always wishing him dead. This is about the third time this year,” he said.Kassim Afegbua
According to IBB spokesman,
“We wish to thank those who took time to reach out to us, home and abroad, to find out the truth. We thank you all for your love, care and concern. May Allah grant us all good health, sound mind and long life. Amin.”Kassim Afegbua
