President Muhammadu Buhari’s only son, Mr. Yusuf Buhari, who got involved in a ghastly motorbike crash last December, returned to the country Monday after undergoing further treatment abroad.
Although it could not be ascertained where Yusuf had gone for treatment,
According to reports Yusuf, who arrived the country Monday night, was in a better shape and is expected to resume a normal life.
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.”
He 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 issue.
Adesina, who sounded irritable, said: “The boy has a right to his private life. We can’t be talking about him and his movement.”
