I’​m Not Dead – Abiye Sekibo

A former Minister of Transport, Abiye Sekibo, on Tuesday debunked speculations of his death, which made the rounds on the internet.

Mr. Sekibo, a medical practitioner, told PREMIUM TIMES exclusively that his rumoured death is the handiwork of his detractors.

Reports, early Tuesday, claimed the River State-born politician is dead.

It said Mr. Sekibo died while on his way out of the country for medical attention, adding that a close family associate confirmed the report.

But while speaking with PREMIUM TIMES, Mr. Sekibo, who sounded surprised at the news, said he is alive and had not even been sick.

He claimed the reports were politically motivated.

“It is unbelievable that people could go this far in trying to destroy another person,” the former minister said. “Election is just by the corner and a lot of people don’t want me around and that is why they are coming up with the rumour. I am not dead. It is all rumour.”

Mr. Sekibo is only one of many Nigerian public officials who were once rumoured to have died in the past when indeed they were alive and healthy.

    You should be dead or rotting in prison. Stephen Davis named you as the man that killed Harry Marshall and confirmed that Obasanjo had evidence of your complicity in the cold murder of an innocent man. Too many known murderers roaming freely in a rotten country! Eyesore!

  • True Nigerian

    You cherish life so much that you can’t even countenance rumours of being dead. Yet you ruthlessly and wickedly took the life of another innocent man. It is painful that you are still alive. But I hope you have been kept alive in order to face a long painful death, which you very well deserve. Perhaps your death will be more painful than the one you and Obasanjo visited on Harry Marshall.
