The family of Mamman Daura, President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, says Daura travelled to the Uk but he is hale and hearty.
Family sources while speaking to The Cable news, disclosed that Daura travelled to the UK but not to treat Covid-19.
“It is true he travelled to the UK on Wednesday. Every other thing is imagined, just to give the story some sensation. He is in good health,” a family member, who declined not to be named “because it is not necessary”, told TheCable.
A different family member said: “It is impossible that a man, who is over 80, would have breathing problems on Friday and the family would wait for five days before flying him abroad in an emergency. A man having breathing problems on Friday would not attend a public funeral on Tuesday.
“The reports said he was flown out in a private jet, although people with medical emergencies are usually flown in air ambulances.
“More so, what country in the world is receiving foreign COVID-19 patients at this time? You are required to be COVID negative before you can fly. Every country is paying priority to their own citizens because of the overwhelming nature of the pandemic.
“Mallam 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.”
Concerning the issue of the current travel ban on international air travels, the source said “that is a different matter entirely… there have been special flights authorised out of the country, and that does not mean those authorised to fly had COVID-19”.
