'Is Buhari Dead?' This Becomes The Most Searched Phrase On Google In Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari is the most

popular Nigerian online in the past two weeks.

And over the weekend, rumours started flying

around, first from MetroUK website that

'President Buhari has died in London', though

the presidency was quick to deny the claims.

Despite this, millions of concerned Nigerians

and people across world have gone online to

search answers for 'Is Buhari dead?', a phrase

that has become the most searched item on

Nigerian platforms this week.

On Saturday, January 21st, over 100,000 people

searched 'Is Buhari dead' on Google and at

least 5,000 people still search the subject daily.

Buhari departed Nigeria on Thursday, January

19th for a two-week vacation in London where

he would undergo medical check-ups.

As a result, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is

acting as president till Buhari resumes office on

February 6th.

While the presidency has denied reports on

Buhari's death, Nigerians won't back out until

they see their president back in the country.
