Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, IBB, Nigeria’s former Military President has attributed the delay in releasing his biography to fear of being sued for libel.

He disclosed this while speaking in an interview on Channels Television on Friday adding that he intends to ensure the memoir turns out top notch.

IBB said, “I am scared of somebody suing me to court to say that I libelled somebody or that I misrepresented somebody and I will spend five years going to court.”

Responding to a question on his friends’ view about being restrained by the oath of secrecy not to disclose some issues, he said, “Don’t forget, not only in Nigeria but throughout the world.”

He added, “For a certain number of years beyond which anybody will punish you, for opening the secret because you have passed a certain period.

“It (memoirs) will come but if it doesn’t come my children will go into the classroom and research. Everything that will need research about us we have in abundance. I know that General Obasanjo has a library that is very rich.”
