Bala Haruna who was reported dead on news media after swimming in and drinking water from a drainage (gutter) in Bauchi to celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election has finally spoken out.
According to a report, the viral report on his death was a fabrication and fake news relayed on the Social Media.
He was reported to have died after battling with gastrointestinal bleeding in the hospital for days after his public stunt.
“As I am talking to you now, I am on my way back to Bauchi after we finished a painting work somewhere outside Bauchi,” he said.
According to him, his decision to drink water from the gutter if President Muhammadu Buhari wins re-election was a promise, he took in the presence of people which he fulfilled.
“It is true, I made the promise before the elections and I fulfilled it and I have no regrets,” he added.
