Aisha Buhari reportedly flown to Dubai to seek medical treatment


A report by Daily Trust indicates that Nigeria’s First Lady Aisha Buhari, has reportedly been flown to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, for medical treatment.

Although newsunplug could not immediately verify the claims, reports online claim the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari was reported to have departed the country after Sallah celebration as a result of persistent neck pain following her return from a trip to Lagos.

The first lady who returned to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), had paid a condolence visit to the widow of former Oyo state governor, Abiola Ajimobi, Florence at their residence in Ikoyi back in July.

Though she went into self-isolation for 14 days after visiting the Lagos home of Florence Ajimobi, the president’s wife reportedly continued to experience pains.

In another report by Channels TV, the reported trip to the Arab country was prompted because of the neck pain that refused to stop after the condolence visit.

The president’s wife was last seen in public during the Eid-el-Kabir prayers at the Villa with her family where she posed for photographs.

The report is currently trending on Twitter which has generated mixed reactions from Nigerians.

Below are some of the reactions:

The presidency has yet to officially release a statement on this matter.
