Aisha Buhari Allegedly Claims Husband Muhammadu Buhari Died in 2017


Recent online assertions suggest that Nigeria’s former president, Muhammadu Buhari, passed away in 2017, with his wife Aisha allegedly confirming the claim. However, fact-checking investigations have debunked these rumors, revealing them to be false.


The claims originated from a blog post by Igbo Times Magazine, stating that Aisha Buhari disclosed her husband’s demise in 2017 and his subsequent replacement by a Sudanese imposter. These allegations were widely circulated alongside previous rumors of Buhari being replaced by a body double named “Jubril” from Sudan.


In response to these allegations, fact-checking platforms have thoroughly examined the evidence. Africa Check, in a report released on February 23, 2024, categorically refuted the claims, emphasizing that there is no credible evidence to support Buhari’s death or his replacement with a look-alike.


The fact-checking organization pointed out the lack of substantiated reports from reputable local and international media regarding Aisha Buhari’s alleged statement. Additionally, they highlighted the persistence of these baseless claims since 2017, despite their consistent debunking.


While rumors and conspiracy theories often gain traction online, it is essential to rely on verified information from credible sources. In this case, the evidence overwhelmingly supports the fact that Muhammadu Buhari is alive and that claims of his demise and subsequent impersonation are entirely unfounded.


As misinformation continues to proliferate across digital platforms, critical thinking and fact-checking remain crucial tools in discerning truth from fiction, especially concerning sensitive matters such as the health and identity of public figures.


While Aisha Buhari’s alleged remarks have sparked controversy, it is clear from rigorous fact-checking efforts that they hold no merit. As the Nigerian public navigates an era inundated with misinformation, vigilance and scrutiny are imperative in upholding the integrity of public discourse and political narratives.
