President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf Buhari will be flown abroad to continue his treatment, according to reports.
The only son of the president is still in intensive care unit at Cedacrest hospital in Abuja after his involvement in a motorbike accident in same state on Tuesday evening.
The presidency in a statement had said the young man was in a stable condition but The Cable reports that sources say he was still in intensive care unit.
The source told The Cable: “The statement did not reflect the true situation of things. The boy is in a critical condition. He has been in the intensive care unit.
“Some doctors in the hospital were even scared to attend to him just in case anything went wrong. Imagine doctors being scared to perform their duty. He is the only son of the president.”
According to the source, an air ambulances will be deployed soon and Yusuf will be transfered to a German hospital for further treatment.
However, doctors reportedly advised against moving him in his current state as it may be dangerous to do so.
The source said: “The last time they mentioned flying him abroad for better treatment, the medical team advised them against it because the boy needs to be in a good condition before he leaves.
“But they do not seem to be satisfied with the advice and they are seriously considering flying him out.”
