Babangida returns to Nigeria after death rumours
Former military ruler, Ibrahim Babangida, has returned to Nigeria from a three-week trip to Germany for medical treatment
Mr. Babangida arrived Minna Airport on Friday at about 3:30pm.
Rumour of his death was awash in the social media last week before it was refuted by his son, Mohammed Babangida.
Niger State governor, Abubakar Bello, said the country still needs Mr. Babangida around for his counsel.
Gov. Sani Bello who welcomed the former military leader said “despite unfounded rumour about the life of our national icon, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, we are grateful that it pleases Allah (SWT) to preserve his life and bring him back safely and healthier to continue in the good work of nation building.
“General Ibrahim Babangida remains one of the few leaders in this country that we still need around to tap from their wealth of experience and knowledge and we are grateful he is back and kicking like the old soldier he is.
“Your safe return has finally put a lie to the rumour and the evil machinations of those who are playing God. We are grateful to Allah (SWT) that He has silence them”.
