Buhari’s nephew, Daura, flown abroad for treatment – SaharaReporters



Mamman Daura , a nephew of the President , Major General Muhammadu Buhari ( retd. ) , was on Wednesday flown abroad for an urgent medical treatment , according to a report by
SaharaReporters .
The online news platform , reported that Daura , known to be one of the powerful men behind Buhari’s Presidency , was flown to the United Kingdom.
“ Daura , 79 , was said to have been flown in a private jet to the UK on Wednesday after exhibiting respiratory difficulties with symptoms similar to coronavirus since last Friday , ” the report read.
Daura made the trip at a time the ban imposed on international flights as one of the ways of curtailing further spread of COVID -19 in Nigeria has not been lifted .
The President ’s wife , Aisha Buhari, had also defied the ban and reportedly flew to the United Arab Emirates .
Efforts to get presidential spokesmen to talk on the Daura ’ s trip on Wednesday evening did not yield any result .
A Presidency source however said since Daura is not a government official , it would be wrong to expect any reaction from the government .“ Is he ( Daura ) a government official ? Is that how the Presidency has been speaking officially on the movement of private citizens ? I think it will be unfair to expect the Presidency to speak on this , ” the source said.
