Earlier this week, President Buhari’s son, Yusuf Buhari was in a coma following a bike crash while he was racing with his friends. However Daily Nigerian reports that Bashir Gwandu who is Yusuf Buhari’s best friend is also in a coma and has been admitted at the intensive care unit of Cedarcrest Hospital, Abuja.
It was gathered that the Tuesday night crash happened after Yusuf revved up the engine of his motorbike in order 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 happened. Rumour was rife on Thursday morning that Yusuf was flown to Germany for treatment but the spokesman for the president, Garba Shehu, dismissed it.
