This is Why Most Nigerians Believed Their President Has Been Replaced by a Sudanese Clone

For a considerable length of time, gossipy tidbits had spread on social of the passing of Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari and his ensuing replacement by a fraud from Sudan named Jubril.

Numerous Nigerians fell for the phony news which was broadly hawked by restriction legislators as the nation gets ready for a general decision in February one year from now in which Buhari is challenging.

It was accounted for to have been begun by Nnamdi Kanu, the pioneer of the Biafran rebel association, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who had said in a video that Buhari kicked the bucket in 2017 and supplanted by Jubril who experienced plastic medical procedure to be a Buhari twin. He asserted that Buhari was covered in Saudi Arabia.


The Jubril theories kept making the rounds on social media platforms and on Youtube with videos and pictures making comparisons between the president and his speculated clone.

Buhari’s ears, hands, height and face were compared and contrasted by many Nigerians fuelling the theories and drawing others into the conversation without any evidence.


Some of the Jubril theorists have demanded a DNA test to prove or disprove their claim which has been widely believed by many Nigerians.

The president addressed the speculations in a town hall session with Nigerians in Poland where he described the rumours as “ignorant and irreligious” when he was asked about Jubril.

“It’s real me, I assure you … I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday and I will still go strong … A lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health,” he said.

Buhari has spent about 5 months in Britain last year for treatment for an undisclosed illness which raised several suspicions and sparked demonstrations for him to give up power. He returned from the long medical leave to lead the government which was being managed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who was the acting president in Buhari’s absence.

This is the first time a rumour of an African president being cloned has surfaced.
