I am very sorry for a report which was published on this blog about the passing on of a great Nigerian, Mike Akhigbe. The report which I got from an otherwise credible National Newspaper has been discredited by family members. Here is the true story:
THE family of the former Chief of General Staff, Admiral Mike Akhigbe, has, described as untrue, online reports that the former number two man died in a London hospital.
Contrary to the reports of his alleged death, elder brother of the Admiral, Chief Joseph Alemon Akhigbe, said the news about his death was shocking to the family because ‘’ it is not true and it is really embarrassing to us’’.
According to him,‘’My brother is stabilizing in an American hospital and not even London as erroneously reported.

As I speak to you now, the report in my opinion is pure speculation, the paper said he died in a London hospital but my brother is in an American hospital stabilizing.

The wife, son-in-law and his daughter are with him. My immediate younger brother in Abuja who spoke to the wife in America confirmed to family members that the Admiral is stabilizing; the news of his death is totally untrue.
Also, younger brother of the Admiral, Mr Aselenmen Akhigbe, declared that the report is untrue. He said ‘’ I spoke with him this early morning at about 5am, that is why we are surprise with such an erroneous report.

    Usually Nigerian big men don’t respond to queries by the press, so those is bound to happen and be repeated.
    No need to apologise.
