Contrary to the widely circulated rumour that is dead and buried in Kano, the former speaker has confirmed that he is still alive and currently in London on a personal trip.
Similarly, a former legislative aide to the former speaker has said it would be foolhardy for one to believe that a person of such calibre can simply die and buried in Kano without people knowing about it.
He said: “He is in London on a personal trip and has been trapped due to the present difficulty in accessing the flight back to the country. The rumour is just a figment of the imagination of the person who posted the story on an online platform.
“We are part of his family and we are in the best position to know whether he is dead or not. If you have his phone number, just give him a call, he would answer you. But as far as we are concerned, we are not aware of what was bandied about on the online platform. I can’t understand what people stand to gain by spreading rumour and falsehood.”
