But Buhari told the Nigerians living in the European nation that he would soon celebrate his 76th birthday, adding that "a lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health".

In a clip on Mr Buhari's official Twitter account on Sunday, he addressed what he jokingly referred to as an "important question" about whether he was cloned. "It's real me; I assure you". He said the false reports of his death even prompted some to reach out to his vice president because they assumed he would replace him.

In a video now trending on social media, Oyedepo quoted an article written by Olatunde Dare, a columnist of the Nation Newspaper, saying Buhari could have died when he sought medical treatment in London and that someone cloned as him is now presiding over Nigeria. "And I'm still going strong!"
