Yes, that is a real headline.
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has had to deny that he is a Sudanese man named Jubril, who has been installed as a “clone” of the real President Buhari.
The rumours, which “surprisingly” began on social media, state that the real President Buhari has been ill for some time, and that due to his gaunt stature, his lack of public appearances and little-to-no information about his illness – he has been replaced by the “clone” because…
…well, just because.
I think if you’re going to state such a huge claim as this, you at least need to have a reason.
Oh – and some proof maybe?
The World’s gone mad…
