Associates of former Military Head of State Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, IBB, debunked rumours of his death on Sunday.

Alhaji Mahmud Abdullahi, one of Babangida’s aides, said nothing was wrong with the former Military Head of State.

Mahmud said he spent hours with IBB on Saturday and has been in contact with him today.

Addressing newsmen, Mahmud described the death rumour as the price Babangida has to pay for being popular.

He wondered why people would mistake the former Military Head of State for veteran footballer Tijjani Babangida, who was involved in an accident along Kaduna Road and lost some family members.

According to Mahmud: “I don’t know how the death of the brother of footballer Tijjani Babangida has become former President Babangida. Nothing is wrong with IBB, that I can authoritatively tell you.

“I have been receiving calls from people wanting to know what is happening, and I tell them that nothing happened. IBB is hale and hearty, and they should ignore rumours of his death.”
