Former military presi­dent, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida has said the he is getting used to rumours of his death.

Speaking at his hilltop mansion after returning from Germany where he undertook a medical treatment, Babangida said there was no need spreading rumour about death, since everybody will get ill or die.

Babangida had arrived Minna International air­port last Friday in a chat­tered aircraft amidst tight security. He looked hale and hearty, but chose to wear a black caftan and black cap to match.

Amongst those seen in his entourage was his son Aminu, and Hali­ma his last daughter, while the former

governor of the state, Abdullahi Kure, his el­dest son Mohammed Babangida, Aisha Ba­bangida, Umar Ndanusa and a former federal per­manent secretary, Idris Adamu Kutawere were at the airport to welcome him.

On his death rumour, Babangida said, 'as a Muslim it is written that every human being shall die and get sick'

He recalled that it was not the first time that the rumour of his death would be out in the public, stressing that he was getting used to it now, though he won­dered why people were con­stantly peddling the rumour of his death at the slightest news of attending to his health.

He disclosed that it was just a structural medical problem that was being ad­dressed by medical experts and periodic medical check-ups. - The Sun.
