“Yes, he is going for a routine medical check in the United Kigdoom. He has been going there to check his troubled leg.
“Yesterday, before his departure, he met with some people who came to see him from Niger Republic. From the picture, he was holding a walking stick and was not on wheel chair.”
According to him, the online report for reason best known to them wanted to be mischievous and paint a picture of him as a very sick man.
