Babangida Dead? Update From German Hospital has received several requests from Nigerians about the update on former military president, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida. While I was trying to get credible information from close sources, the man himself broke the silence on a live programme on TVC, saying “I am alive.”


Speaking with the anchor person on the programme, ‘Journalist Hangout,’ IBB said he is hail and hearty and not dead as being speculated. He assured that he would soon return to Nigeria.

According to NAN, Babangida was actually ill and was receiving treatment abroad.

Their source confirmed: “Yes, Babangida is sick and has gone to Germany for treatment. Everybody knows this tradition of his going for medication in Germany. As we talk now, he is already on his way from Germany. He had a stopover somewhere in a European country. But, by Friday he will be back in time for the Friday prayers.”

We wish him quick recovery.
