Former military president, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, has said the he is getting used to rumours of his death.
Speaking at his hilltop mansion after returning from Germany where he undertook a medical treatment, Babangida said there was no need spreading rumour about death, since everybody will get ill or die.
Babangida had arrived Minna International airport last Friday in a chattered aircraft amidst tight security.
He looked hale and hearty, but chose to wear a black caftan and black cap to match.
Among those seen in his entourage was his son Aminu, and Halima his last daughter, while the former governor of the state, Abdullahi Kure, his eldest son Mohammed Babangida, Aisha Babangida, Umar Ndanusa and a former federal permanent secretary, Idris Adamu Kutawere, were at the airport to welcome him.
On his death rumour, Babangida said, “as a Muslim it is written that every human being shall die and get sick”.
He recalled that it was not the first time that the rumour of his death would be out in the public, stressing that he was getting used to it now, though he wondered why people were constantly peddling the rumour of his death at the slightest news of attending to his health.
He disclosed that it was just a structural medical problem that was being addressed by medical experts and periodic medical check-ups.
