Former military President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd) has returned to Nigeria. He arrived the Minna International airport Friday in a private aircraft, New Telegraph reports.
IBB, who was rumoured to have died in some media, arrived around 3:30pm from Germany in a chartered aircraft with number N550 DR after a medical trip and was wearing a black kaftan and black cap to match.
The former Military President was in company of his son, Aminu, and daughter, Halima, and was welcomed at the airport by his first son, Mohammed, daughter Aisha, former governor, Abdulkadir Kure, Umar Ndanusa and former federal permanent secretary Idris Adamu Kuta.
He was immediately driven straight to his Hilltop Mansion, where one of his personal assistants, hinted that IBB would brief the press later.
Incidentally, in a phone call to a private television station in Lagos a few days ago, IBB had allayed fears of his demise and had said that he would be returning to the country on Sunday.
