Former Military Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, has denied media reports claiming that he is dead.

Naija Latest Gist understands that reports emerged on social media that the former Nigerian leader had died at the age of 89.

But Gowon, in a terse statement on Monday night issued by his spokesman, Adeyeye E. Ajayi, said he is alive, still around and healthy.

The former head of state said he is not in a hurry to die, asking the general public to disregard his rumoured death.
He said: “I am still around and well. I am not in a hurry.”

Gowon is from Lur, a small village in the present Kanke Local Government Area of Plateau State.

He was born in October 1934. He joined the Nigerian Army in 1954 and was trained at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in England. He rose to the rank of general in 1966.

He was the head of state of Nigeria from 1966 to 1975, during which time he presided over the Nigerian Civil War.

Gowon led the country during the Nigerian Civil War, which lasted from 1967 to 1970.

After the war, Gowon promised to return Nigeria to civilian rule. However, he was overthrown in a bloodless coup in 1975.

However, many netizens find it an issue because they believe that it is a greeting only peculiar to cultists.

See reactions to the video here

@UnkleAyo said: “This is the typical greeting members of the axemen confraternity greet each other with. I’m not seeing anyone ask if Burna boy’s mother doesn’t advise him – or is that moral guidance only relevant to female celebrities, like Ayra star? 🙂
Let’s maintain the same energy. Amen?”

@sales_unwana opined: “That’s normal African greeting only for true African men who understand we are constantly in war against slavery👑”

@Romzy33 warned: “Say no to cultism, Davido and Burna boy are the one’s popularizing these cult activities now, some of their fans can go jolly or Bam because of them”

@NotUrKev asked: “Which kind greetings be that? Shey I fit greet my padi like that?”
