President Muhammadu Buhari’s only son, Mr. Yusuf Buhari, who was involved in a ghastly motorbike accident last December, returned to the country Monday after undergoing further treatment overseas.
According to This Day, the gentleman returned to the country yesterday February 26. Yusuf had broken a limb and sustained injuries to the head in an accident when himself and his friend were having a motorbike race in Abuja.
Although it could not be ascertained where Yusuf had gone for treatment, THISDAY gathered that Yusuf, who arrived the country Monday night, was in a better shape and is expected to resume a normal life.
At the time of his accident, a statement by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, had said Yusuf Buhari was allegedly drag racing with his friend, when the accident happened on December 26.
According to the statement,
“Yusuf broke a limb and sustained an injury to the head as a result. He has undergone surgery at a clinic in Abuja. He is in a stable condition.”
Yusuf Buhari had first undergone successful emergency surgery at the Cedarcrest Hospitals, Abuja, carried out by a team of neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons.
As Yusuf’s health improved, he was transferred from the intensive care unit of the hospital to the ward, following which he was certified stable and discharged.
But sources in the presidency disclosed Monday that shortly after he was discharged from Cedarcrest, he departed the country quietly due to the sensitivity surrounding his treatment abroad.
When contacted Monday on his return, the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the President, Mr. Femi Adesina, declined to comment on the issueAdesina, who sounded irritable, said:
“The boy has a right to his private life. We can’t be talking about him and his movement.”
President Muhammadu Buhari’s only son, Yusuf, has was treated in Cedarcrest Hospital Abuja before he was flown aborad.
