Muhammed Babangida, son of former head of state, Gen Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida (rtd), has finally opened up on his father’s ill health to encomium.ng. He stated that IBB, as Babangida is also known, is still recuperating after a corrective surgery recently as a result of radiculopathy disease. He, however, allayed fears over the present health status of the former military dictator.
Speaking with encomium.ng on Thursday, April 21, 2016, Muhammed said, “It’s nothing new that IBB has radiculopathy, everybody knows that. But he has just gone through a corrective surgery and he’s recuperating at the moment. And if you will reason with me, being an old man it will take some time for the surgery to heal.
“Even, he’s supposed to be at home resting. But he had to attend the valedictory service for the former Chief Judge of Niger state because of his relationship with him. That’s the reason he stepped out few days ago.”
