Former Nigerian President, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida has reportedly taken ill and is currently being treated at a hospital in Germany.

According to Sahara Reporters, Babangida was taken to Germany 10 days ago after his health deteriorated.

The exact ailment from which the former military ruler is suffering has not been disclosed but it is reportedly connected to a chronic back problem for which he earlier had surgery.

Sources told Sahara Reporters that the former general is severely ill but a close friend is said to have stated that he (IBB) is getting better.

However, ThisDay reports that Babangida is only in Germany for a routine medical checkup after supposedly speaking to the former general yesterday, September 21, 2014.

IBB is said to have also stated that he will be back in the country on Wednesday, September 24, 2014.
