The presidency was quick to deny the claims but however, millions of concerned Nigerians and people across world have gone online to search for answers using the phrase 'Is Buhari dead?'
-- A phrase that has become the most searched item on Nigerian platforms this week. On Saturday, January 21, 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 19 for a two-week vacation in London where he would undergo medical check-ups. And as constitution demands, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is acting as president till Buhari resumes office on February 6.
Even when The Presidency has denied reports on Buhari's death, Nigeria citizens still haven't backed out until they saw their president back in the country.
