A dust cloud was raised almost 24 hours ago as several blogs and social media accounts announced the death of Alhaji Shehu Shagari.
Earlier in the week, it was reported that the former president had health problems that warranted medical attention.
Amid the speculation and rumors, just like cat with multiple lives, he bounced back to life which was according to an authoritative report released by Tribune to allay worries: Shehu Shagari is not dead.
Nuhu Koko, personal assistant to Shagari and head of the Shehu Shagari Foundation said, quite simply: “Shagari is alive.”
Now, the real question still remains, ‘Is the Nigeria’s second republic president, whose government was overthrown by the then Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, alive or not?’
