Fact Check: Is Buhari Still Alive And Who Is Yusuf Abubakar?


Here is a fact check on a rumour spread on social media by IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu says Yusuf Abubakar is the President of Nigeria, not Buhari.

During a live Instagram interview with Mazi Kanu hosted by Dr Dele Momodu 29th of October 2020.

Claim: Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said President Muhammadu Buhari is Dead, that Jubril from Sudan was initially on the seat but later ran away in Cuba. That the present man in Aso Rock now is from the Niger Republic and his name is Yusuf Abubakar Muhammad.

Mazi claimed Shekau said it in a video that Yusuf Abubakar Muhammad is the President.

What is false: Yusuf Abubakar Muhammad is not Nigeria’s President, If you listen closely to the video, he’s talking about the president of Niger, not Nigeria.

What is true: President Muhammadu Buhari is not Dead, he’s alive but old age is affecting him. In the video, Abubakar Shekau, leader of Boko Haram mentioned “Mahamadou Issoufou” the President of Niger and he later mentioned “Idriss Debri” the President of Chad.
