Presidential Security Details Appears in Trouble Over Yusuf’s Bike Accident
President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly read the riot act to his security aides over the power bike accident that involved his son, Yusuf.
Yusuf was reportedly racing with his friend, Bashir Gwandu on Tuesday night around 8 pm when he crashed his power bike, sustaining life threatening head injuries and breaking a limb in the process.
The president was at the hospital on Wednesday night. He came in company of the Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun and was very devastated when he saw his son, Yusuf, in a very critical situation. He was shaking his head, while looking at his son and thereafter angrily reprimanded his security officials for allowing Yusuf to leave home at that time of the day for power-bike racing.
From the way the president spoke, it appears the security aides are in trouble. He spoke angrily. The Minister of Interior, Lt-Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau ( rtd); his FCT ministry counterpart, Alhaji Mohammed Bello; and the Senate President’s wife, Mrs. Toyin Saraki; stayed throughout the night of Tuesday till Wednesday at the hospital with Hajia Aisha Buhari.
While the doctors were working to stabilise him, Dambazau kept appealing to the doctors to do everything possible to stabilise Yusuf, saying the president would find it very difficult to bear the pain if anything happens to his son.”
Reports indicate that the wife of the president, Mrs. Aisha Buhari has remained strong, contrary to wide spread rumours of a bed rest. She has remained calm and composed in the midst of it all.
