FLASH | Yusuf Buhari to be Flown to Germany for Further Treatment
Yusuf Buhari, the son of Nigeria’s President who was critically injured during a drag-racing motorbike accident in Gwanripa neighbourhood in Abuja last December will be heading to Germany for further medical treatment, Saharareporters has reported.
The online newspaper reports that Yusuf could not immediately be airlifted outside Nigeria due to the severity of injuries to his brain.
Recall that SIGNAL had broke the news of Yusuf’s bike accident, hinting he would be flown abroad for medical attention. But in a pushback, the Presidency denied the reports insisting he was in stable condition here in Nigeria.
