Contrary to news sources that President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, Mamman Daura was flown to UK for urgent medical attention, Daura seems to be hale and hearty.
Recall that on the 20th of August, family sources confirmed he was indeed flown to the UK but in good health, many Nigerians had claimed it was a ”well packaged lies”
Mamman Daura, nephew to President Muhammadu Buhari, says he is currently in quarantine in the United Kingdom where he travelled to recently.
UK mandates new arrivals from certain countries, including Nigeria, to self-quarantine for 14 days.
In a video in which he was speaking in Hausa over the phone with Buhari in what appeared to be a private residence, Daura said he arrived safely in the UK.
The former journalist had left the country on Wednesday, leading to rumours that he had been infected with COVID-19 and was flown out on medical emergency.
But his Family Sources Had Told TheCable that he is “in good health” and only travelled for his regular medical check-up.
“Mallam (Daura) did not travel to the UK to treat COVID-19 or because of any medical emergency. He is in good health. He went for his regular check-up and there is nothing strange about that,” one of his relatives had told TheCable.
