Jibril of Sudan: Buhari recovered by grace, says ex-official photographer

Former President Muhammadu Buhari


The official photographer of former President Muhammadu Buhari, Bayo Omoboriowo, has described Buhari as a man of grace.


Omoboriowo who disclosed this while speaking on Channels Television claimed that Buhari is a man of grace because of the wonders in his recovery process in 2015.


According to the former Presidential photographer, who dispelled the reports that the former President was cloned, by programming his characters into his look-alike man from Sudan, known as Jubril Al-Sudan, there was no pronounced change in the former President when he came back from his medical trip, then gaining the weight he lost when he was sick.


“And I will say it, and I owe nobody any apology.


“President Buhari to me is a man of grace and I think then, that was what happened.


“I still have that conversation with an elderly woman over the Christmas break.


“And she called me to the room, saying Bayo, come! come, dragging me into her kitchen, and she said Bayo, is it Buhari? Is it Buhari?


“And I was just trying to explain to her that, see I’m a photographer, if he changed, I will know.”


Answering questions on whether there was a difference between when he travelled and when he came back, the former Presidential photographer said, “As he progressed, he was looking fresher, he was looking better. And I can just imagine the recovery process, the medical process, but I don’t want to go into that conversation because for me, it is just a matter of telling the story of a man, from when he left and when he came back, he was still the same to me. He lost weight and he regained the weight, that is just it.”


It would be recalled that the changes in former President Buhari when he came back from his medical trip to the United Kingdom in 2015, caused a lot of controversies when the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, claimed that Buhari was dead, buried in Saudi Arabia, and was cloned with another man called Jubril from Sudan.


However, the claim sparked outrage speculations across the country, with people calling for his resignation, alleging that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress and the cabals in the presidency, were covering up something.
