ABUJA, Nigeria – Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday denied alleged that he had died and been replaced by an attacker, breaking his silence on a rumor that has circulated on social media for months. Buhari, who runs for re-election in February, spent five months in Britain last year treated for an undiscovered disease.

"It is true, I assure you. I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday and I will still be strong," told Buhari Nigerians in a council session in Poland where he attended a conference when asked about Jubril. "Many people hoped I died during my ill health," he said, adding that those who spread the rumors were "ignorant and irreligious."
