President Buhari reflects on the time he was detained for 40 months in a small bungalow in Benin


 President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed how he spent most of his detention in Benin.

Recall that the president  was removed by senior military officers in the August 1985 coup, which saw former military president, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, take over power.
After his overthrow, Buhari was put under house arrest for so many months until his release in 1988, after the death of his mother.
While on a two-day working visit to Edo State, yesterday, Buhari said many had forgotten that he spent most part of his 40 months detention in the ancient city.
“Not many people may remember: I spent most of the 40 months of my detention, following the 1985 coup, in a small bungalow here in Benin,” he said.
Yesterday, after inaugurating a remodeled 200-bed capacity ultra modern central hospital, which the administration of Governor Adams Oshiomhole, the outgoing governor, built in Benin, Buhari said he was impressed with the edifice.
