President Muhammad Buhari

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to London for medical check-ups, his office announced.

Buhari, who has not been seen in public for about three months, left Nigeria after meeting with the 82 girls from Chibok High School, who were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents and spent 3 years in captivity. The girls were released over the weekend.

Over the past six months President Buhari’s health has caused anxiety in Nigeria, with three former Presidents: Obasanjo Olusegun, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida and General Abdsalami Abubakar meeting last week to discuss the issue.
