Staff of the Presidential Villa on Thursday offered special prayer for the quick recovery of the President’s son, Yusuf Buhari.
Yusuf was involved in a bike accident on Tuesday night.
The prayer session which was held immediately after the (Asr) afternoon prayer, was led by the Chief Imam of Aso Rock Mosque, Sheik Abdulwahid Suleiman.
Suleiman prayed for God’s guidance and protection of the first family and all Nigerians, and prayed for peace and tranquillity in the country.
The Senior Special Assistant on Media and publicity, Garba Shehu, had on Wednesday in a statement confirmed that Yusuf was involved in a bike accident and in a stable condition.
He said that Yusuf had the accident on Tuesday night around Gwarimpa area in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
Shehu said Buhari junior broke a limb and also sustained an injury on the head as a result of the incident.
“He has undergone surgery at a clinic in Abuja. He is in a stable condition.
“The President and his wife, Mrs Aisha Muhammadu Buhari are thankful to Nigerians for the good wishes and prayers for their son,” he said.
Shehu on Thursday also dismissed as `fake news’ an online story that the President’s son, Yusuf Buhari was flown out of the country early Thursday morning following his severe head injury.
Shehu was reacting to an online media outfit, TheCable, which reported that Buhari had been flown to Germany over head injury he sustained following a bike accident on Tuesday night.
TheCable posted on Thursday: “As previously reported by TheCable, he is being flown to Germany for specialist care.
“The family is said to have decided on Germany.
“He was driven to the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja, in an ambulance with oxygen support.
“An orthopedic consultant with specialisation in head injuries was also on the flight to monitor his progress.’’
However, Shehu, said Yusuf Buhari was still being treated at a private hospital in Abuja
