How Media Aide 'Changed' IBB's Original Statement
OK, there is an original statement from former president, Ibrahim Babangida but the version we all saw had been doctored.
Who did it? His media aide, Kassim Afegbua.
Now you understand why you saw the story that police had invited him for questioning for ‘issuing a fake press statement to the public’.
The entire drama now looks like the retired general’s camp had to deny the statement when they saw that it was different from what the statesman said.
However, Kassim somehow managed to make us believe he had not erred by stating that they stood by the statement he released.

However, the statement titled “My Counsel To The Nation – By General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, GCFR” was not addressed to President Buhari.
