Yusuf Buhari To Be Flown To Germany For Further Treatment

Yusuf Buhari who has been receiving treatment at the Cedarcrest Hospital, Abuja following his motorbike accident has remained unresponsive to treatment and will be flown to Germany for further medical attention.

Yusuf was in a severe medical condition and could not be immediately airlifted outside Nigeria for treatment due to the severe injuries to his brain.

Renowned neurosurgeons, Professor Temitayo Shokunbi and Professor Bello Bala Shehu, the current vice chancellor of Federal University Birnin-Kebbi, have been in charge of his treatment but now he will be transferred tonight.

Yusuf will be admitted to St. Josefs Hospital in Wiesbaden, Germany, Wednesday night and will be accompanied by his mother, Aisha Buhari, daughter of the President, Mrs. Halima Buhari-Sheriff, personal physician to the first lady (who was earlier on admission due to high blood pressure), Dr. Kamal Mohammed and three other aides.

Yusuf and his friend, Bashir Gwandu, were severely injured along Gwarimpa road in Abuja on December 26, 2017.
