OKCITY BREAKING NEWS: Buhari is alive - Presidency debunks death rumour

The presidency has denied a report by some media that President Muhammadu Buhari, who is holidaying abroad is dead.

The post by Garba Shehu appeared in the evening of Saturday, January 21
The disturbing report has first been broken by an alleged fake Metro (UK) site that "quoted" the Nigerian mission in the country as confirming the president’s death.
The report claimed that Buhari visited the UK for medical check over an unknown disease adding that details of his death were still sketchy.
But in his reaction, Garba Shehu, the Buhari’s spokesperson, said: “He is alive and well! President Buhari is not magical. He cannot be holidaying in the UK and be in Germany, dead or alive at the same time.
“He is unlike a past President who was at Ota, with Chief Obasanjo and attending the Trump inauguration in D.C, being in two places at the same time!”
In his reaction, Femi Adeshina, one of President Buhari's aides on media, also reportedly said he would only "say best wishes to all who wish Buhari well while for those who carry evil rumours, may they receive grace to repent".
Garba Shehu's reaction is also believed to be a mockery of the fake report on Friday, January 20 that the former president Goodluck Jonathan was invited by the US for the inauguration of Donald Trump when, indeed, he was in Ogun state with his predecessor, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Nigerians have since yesterday condemned Deji Adeyanju, a spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for breaking the fake report on social media and making fun of the whole nation.
A check on the Metro-UK website that broke the report about the "death of President Buhari" shows several other stories in such a manner.
A simple check of Alexa ranking of this 'source' shows that the site is number 702,853 in the world, therefore, it cannot be considered as credible.
