General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, also known by his initials IBB, the former military leader, left the country for a normal medical examination and is scheduled to return after the general elections.
He reportedly flew out of the country on Saturday for a routine medical checkup in Germany.
According to reports, he flew out of the country on a private jet after departing from the Minna International Airport and arriving at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.
According to reports, he traveled with his second son Aminu and a security guard.

The former Military President, according to a reliable source, is currently in Switzerland.
Whether his immediate family will later travel to Germany with him is unknown.
One of his spokespersons, Mahmud Abdullahi, confirmed the development, saying “The journey is the normal medical routine check-up. There is no cause for alarm. The medical checkup had been long overdue and he has to go now. What Nigerians need to do is to pray for him and wish him well.”
Asked whether it was a deliberate attempt to avoid participating in the forthcoming general elections and avoid any controversies, Mahmood simply said, “I am not aware of that. There had been pressure on him in the past months and it is time for him to go and rest and go for his checkup.”
