The son of former head of state Ibrahim Babangida, Muhammed, has finally confirmed the illness of his father.

Muhammed revealed this whilst speaking about his father’s ill health to

The son of former president said: “It’s nothing new that IBB has radiculopathy, everybody knows that.

“But he has just gone through a corrective surgery and he’s recuperating at the moment. And if you will reason with me, being an old man it will take some time for the surgery to heal.

“Even, he’s supposed to be at home resting. But he had to attend the valedictory service for the former Chief Judge of Niger state because of his relationship with him.

“That’s the reason he stepped out few days ago.”

Babangida’s illness became public last week when he attended the valedictory dinner for Justice Fati Lami Abubakar, the former Niger state chief judge, and was helped out of the venue before the end of the event.
