There were multiple reports earlier this week that a Bauchi-based staunch supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, who swam and drank from a drainage to celebrate his election victory has died.
However, the man who has been identified as Aliyu Mohammed Sani, is very much alive, as he comes out in an interview to quash the rumours of his death.
In an interview with Dailytrust.com.ng, Aliyu, who is a painter, says the reports of his death is nothing but fake news and should be disregarded.
He also told the news site that he has absolutely no regret drinking dirty water from the gutter to celebrate Buhari’s victory.
“It is true, I made the promise before the elections and I fulfilled it and I have no regrets,” he said.
