“President Buhari didn’t die In London, He’s Alive” – Shehu reacts to rumored death

Yesterday evening, news went viral that President Muhammadu Buhari passed away in London.. The news is Fake and entirely False!

Metro UK reported:

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has died in a London Hospital where he was receiving medical care, the Nigerian Mission in UK has said.

According to the information released by the Nigerian Embassy, Buhari left the West African country for a vacation in the U.K in order to undergo medical checks.

One of the President’s aides who accompanied him to the U.K and spoke on condition of anonymity said the President has been battling an “unknown disease” for a while now.

Though the decision to receive medical care in a foreign land angered some of his countrymen, the Nigerian community in London have expressed deep shock for the President’s demise.

It is the second time in a year that Buhari has sought medical treatment outside Nigeria ; he also traveled to London in June 2016 and saw an ear, nose and throat specialist after contracting an ear infection.


However, Official Spokesperson to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (SSA, Media & Publicity) Garba Shehu confirmed that the President is still holidaying in Europe, alive and well.
