ABUJA, Nigeria – Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday denied alleged that he had died and been replaced by an attacker, breaking his silence on a rumor that has circulated on social media for months.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. A theory that was heavily aired on social media &#821 1; and by some political opponents – was that he had been replaced by a look from Sudan called Jubril.No proof has been submitted, but claimed videos have been shown thousands of times on YouTube and Facebook. "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." The Presidency sent Buhari's remarks in an e-mailed statement entitled: "It is true that President Buhari is responding to the statement of cloning." Source link
