Mamman Daura, closest nephew to President Muhammadu Buhari, is critically sick in United Kingdom.
OnyxNews Nigeria quotes reports by SaharaReporters, that Mamman Daura is seriously sick.
According to a top rank government official, the 80-year-old had seen his health dip in recent days, raising fears among family members and close associates including President Buhari, who often relies on his counsel before making major decisions.
“He is not in good shape in London. He’s not been back since the time he was flown there. There is serious concern around his health,” one source said.
OnyxNews Nigeria recalls in August, that Daura was flown to the United Kingdom for urgent medical treatment over an undisclosed ailment.
He was reportedly flown in a private jet to the UK after exhibiting respiratory difficulties with symptoms similar to the deadly coronavirus.
He is said to have had a history of renal crisis and had regularly visited the West for medical attention.
Even with these disclosure, the Presidency claimed that the former journalist travelled to UK for leisure and not for medical reasons.
In September, Daura was unable to attend the wedding of Hanan, President Buhari’s daughter, due to his poor health despite being scheduled to be the father of the day for that occasion.
His absence at the event remained a major talking point among top political players especially considering his closeness to the President.
