Mamman Daura, President Muhammadu Buhari‘s nephew, has revealed that he is currently in quarantine in the United Kingdom.
The UK mandates new arrivals from some countries, including Nigeria, to self-quarantine for 14 days.
Recall that were reports that the President close confidant was flown to UK for medical care.
Speaking to ThisDay, Mohammed, one of Mamman Daura’s son, revealed that his father is hale and healthy.
He also insisted his father does not have renal problems or breathing difficulties.
“For the past couple of days, we have been forced to deny numerous times a completely fabricated story about our father’s well-being.”
“Alhamdulillah. Baba is perfectly fine. He neither has a history of renal problems nor does he have any breathing difficulties like was suggested in the concocted news story,” Mohammed said.
In a video in which he was speaking in Hausa over the phone with Buhari in what appeared to be a private residence, Daura told the president he arrived safely.
The former journalists also expressed condolences on Wada Maida, another associate of the president who died on Monday.
Mamman Daura said: “We arrived safely, so we are in quarantine for now. Yes, unfortunately… that is it,”
“We have not spoken since Mallam Mada Waida (died). May Allah forgive him.”
He also said that a governor came to console him on the death of Isa Funtua, another confidant of the president who passed on a month ago.
