Earlier this week, news broke that President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf was involved in a near-fatal accident with his power bike in Abuja while racing with his friends. The terrible bike crash put Yusuf in coma.
However, Daily Nigerian also reports that Yusuf ’s best friend, Bashir Gwandu…who was also racing with him, is also in coma and admitted at the intensive care unit of Cedarcrest Hospital, Abuja.
Daily Nigerian reports:
“It was gathered that the Tuesday night crash occurred after Yusuf revved up the engine of his motorbike to overtake Bashir Gwandu, but lost control of the machine.
A source said; “The accident happened when Yusuf was trying to overtake Bashir. They collided and somersaulted. They lay unconscious there for a while before permission was sought to take them to the hospital”.
A security vehicle was trailing and giving cover to the president’s son when the accident occurred. Rumor were rife on Thursday morning that Yusuf was flown to Germany for treatment but spokesman for the president, Garba Shehu, dismissed it.
