He is, I think, alive

See African Shirts latest post. The BBC Hausa service spoke to him in hospital 30 mins ago. Yet again, the Nigerian media fail not only to keep a lid on a fast moving story, but to even notice it in the first place. The fact that rumours can so easily be distributed via radio and mobile phone is pretty disturbing. Marshall McCluhan yet again shows his prescience from the grave, when he labelled radio a 'hot' media and television a 'cold' one.

What was it that Samuel Clements (Mark Twain) said?

"Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated."

This should be the first thing to come out of Yar'aduas mouth when he meets the media for the first time upon his return to Nigeria . . . that is, if he arrives there alive.
