The presidency has denied a report by some media that President Muhammadu Buhari, who is holidaying abroad, is dead.
However, Official Spokesperson to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (SSA, Media & Publicity) Garba Shehu confirmed a few hours ago that the President is still holidaying in Europe, alive and well via his twitter handle.
The alleged report first broken by an alleged fake Metro (UK) site quoted the Nigerian mission in the country as confirming the president’s death.
The report claimed that Buhari visited the UK for a medical check over an unknown disease adding that details of his death were still sketchy.
Nigerians have since yesterday condemned Deji Adeyanju, a spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for breaking the fake report on social media.
