Fake account advocate military comeback in Babangida's name

Legit.ng earlier reported that the claim that Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) warned President Bola Tinubu against a possible military takeover, which had been confirmed false.

However, there is a parody account of the former military leader's name on social media campaigning for a military comeback.

Many of those who engaged the Babangida's parody accounts did not check the details of the account and commented as if it was the former military leader.
