Former military president, General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, 74, is alive, but not hale and hearty, encomium.ng was told by an insider. He’s in Germany reportedly recuperating from a corrective surgery, possibly on his limbs.
The gap-toothed ex-dictator has been in Germany for some time – and tales about his death has been flying afield on the social media. But an insider in touch with the family members of Nigeria’s leader between 1985 and 1993 confirmed that he’s alive.
There are efforts for the retired general to address the press via a tele-conference medium later today ( Wednesday, June 8, 2016) to put paid to the rumour.
