Nigeria’s former military president, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (rtd), has spoken from Germany where he has been in the last few weeks.
IBB, as he is fondly called, said he is alive contrary to reports that he had passed on.
Babangida, speaking on a Television Continental programme on Wednesday, said he would soon return home.
Eagle Online reports that the Lagos-based television programme, Journalists Hangout, was quoted by online medium, African Examiner, as where Babangida called in to dispel the rumour of his death.
He told TVC crew: “I am alive.”
Journalists laying siege to IBB’s Hilltop Mansion in Minna, Niger State, for news on his whereabouts have not reported otherwise.
