John Adams, Minna
The close source to the Hill-top home of the former president told our correspondent in a telephone chat an hour age (1:41pm) on Sunday that he just left the house and “Baba” was in good health.
“I don’t know where the rumour is coming from but I can tell you I just left the house and Baba is fine. He is not even sick not to talk of death; the news is fake and that is all I can tell you”, the source added.
However another source close to Babangida’s hill-top mansion who was an aide to a former governor of the state simply told our correspondent that that “we are all fine at uphill”, suggesting that General Babangida is not dead.
Also a statement by Prince Kasim Afegbua, media spoke person to General Babangida titled “IBB I s alive bubbling”, described the rumor as nothing but a fake news, saying that this is about the third time this year that such rumors is being spread.
“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. He is full of life and in his characteristic bubbling mood.
