Ibrahim Babangida Reveals How He Almost Killed His Wife

Speaking with journalists at his home in Minna while celebrating his 75th birthday, former Head-of-State, Ibrahim Babangida, revealed that he almost killed his late wife, Maryam at Dodan Barracks, Lagos.

In response to a question about accidental discharge and whether he’d ever experienced it the former military leader said: “Accidental discharge! Oh no, I almost had it with someone very
close to me, and when I did, the person involved, luckily, was not dead. I had it during the course of my service and it was in Dodan Barracks and the person who almost took it was my wife, but she escaped it.”

Babangida, however, gave another example where the victim wasn’t so lucky. He said: “But I also had a situation where I was moving with some of my junior officers.There was an alarm and the ammunition fell and hit one of them and he dropped dead there. There is nothing you can do, as a commander, you have to move on. Of course, I knew the family very well, because he was my driver.

“They came, I told them what happened and they took it in good fate, saying that was how God wished it to be, but it was a very painful death.”
