|Yusuf Buhari: President Buhari’s Son|
Media Parrot learnt that the accident occurred on Tuesday night.
“Yusuf Buhari had a power bike accident last night around Gwarimpa in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja,”
Mr. Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said in a statement on Wednesday.
“He broke a limb and had an injury to the head as a result. He has undergone surgery at a clinic in Abuja. He is in a stable condition.
“The President and his wife, Mrs Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, are thankful to Nigerians for the good wishes and prayers for their son.”
Reliable sources told Media Parrot that the crash occurred on Tuesday night when Yusuf was racing with a friend in the capital city.
“Yusuf was trying to overtake his friend when he suddenly veered off the road and skidded. He lay there unconscious for a while before the first lady was alerted,” a family source who preferred anonymity said.
“She ordered that he be immediately rushed to Cedarcrest Hospital, where he is currently receiving treatment. We are more concerned about the head injury than the fractures. As I speak to you, Yusuf is unconscious.
“An air ambulance may take him out of the country any moment.”
