The Presidency has confirmed that President Muhammad Buhari’s son, Yusuf, was involved in a terrible motorcycle accident on Tuesday night.
According to reports of the incident, Yusuf and a friend were racing in Abuja when the incident occurred.
The Daily Nigerian quotes a source as saying: “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.
“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.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, confirmed the accident in a statement today.
Shehu revealed that Yusuf had undergone surgery already, and is in stable condition.
His statement reads: “Yusuf Buhari had a bike accident last night around Gwarimpa in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
“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, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, are thankful to Nigerians for the good wishes and prayers for their son. May God reward you all.”
