The Presidency on Wednesday debunked speculations in some quarters that President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf, has died.
Newsworth recalls that the first son was on December 26 involved in an accident in Abuja when he, alongside a friend, was racing in the Nigerian capital and he veered off the road in the process. The Presidency said at the time that Yusuf broke a limb and had an injury to the head.
Yusuf Buhari later underwent surgery at Cedarcrest Hospital in Abuja.
Reacting to the rumoured death on Wednesday, President Buhari’s assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie said, “The evil news making the rounds regarding Yusuf Buhari, son of President Buhari and Aisha Buhari, is fake.
“He is very much alive to their shame.”
