It was previously reported that a son to President Muhammadu Buhari, Yusuf Buhari, was involved in a bike accident in Abuja.
The presidency confirmed that Yusuf suffered a head injury and multiple fractures in a power bike accident in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on the night of Tuesday, December 26.
A source said: “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.”
