IBB is alive, says spokesman

The family of former military leader, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (IBB), has debunked news of his death trending on the social media.

A statement by his spokesman, Kassim Afegbua said the news on IBB’s alleged death was fake and misleading.

Afegbua issued this statement at the time the former military leader was attending to friends and associates.

“IBB is very much alive and bubbling. He just started attending to friends and associates who came to see him today, Sunday, December 15, 2019, right here at his Minna Hilltop mansion. He is full of life and in his characteristic bubbling mood”.

The statement cautioned those circulating the fake news that it is against humanity to deliberately spread such and wish someone dead.

“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 strange level. IBB, by the special grace of Allah, shall live to fulfill his journey and destiny in life to the surprise of those who are always wishing him dead”, the statement added.
