News Express has been making frantic efforts to confirm information reaching us about former military ruler, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.).

Upon getting enquiries from people over rumours of Buhari’s purported death, News Express promptly contacted sources in his Kaduna base and neighbouring Kano but the sources said they were not aware of any such sad development. News Express also sent an e-mail to Buhari’s spokesman, Yinka Odunmakin, but has yet to get his reply.

News Express hereby requests anyone who has accurate information on the beloved General’s whereabouts and state of health to speak out and dispel the rumours.

The last public outing by Gen. Buahri, who is the National Leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and a three-time presidential candidate, was two days ago when he visited Ogun State, South-West Nigeria, to condole the Matriarch of  the Awolowo family, Mrs. HID Awolowo, in Ikenne over the death of her son, Chief Oluwole Awolowo.

He was accompanied by former Speaker of House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Masari; National Chairman, CPC, Chief Tony Momoh and Pastor Tunde Bakare of Latter Rain Assembly.

Buhari while speaking with newsmen after the visit threw his weight behind the proposed amnesty for Islamic sect, Boko Haram, and commended the Federal Government for making the manesty offer.

According to him, “It is good that they have set up a committee on amnesty. I have not seen the terms of reference but, it is a right step in the right direction.

“This is not the first time amnesty would be given to a violent group, you remember it happened in the time of Yar ‘Adua when he granted amnesty to militants in the Niger Delta. Whatever that would bring us peace as a society, we should do it.”
