Mamman Daura: Nigerians react as Buhari’s nephew is reportedly flown abroad for urgent treatment
Some Nigerians have reacted to reports of Mamman Daura, President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew being flown abroad for urgent medical attention.
The 79-year-old was said to have been flown to the United Kingdom, UK, on a private jet on Wednesday.
Daura, who is believed to be a member of the alleged “cabal” in the Presidency, was said to have been experiencing respiratory difficulties with COVID-19 related symptoms since last Friday.
However, Nigerians expressed different views concerning the report.
While some said Daura and those close to power suffering medical issues should not be sympathized with, others are of the contrary opinion.

@Iam_KingBuchi: “As long as they refuse to do the needful, none of them deserves our sympathy! You quickly forgot that these same Nigerians mourn over the death of the likes of Yar’Adua & Dr Adadevoh. Maybe you should check the integrity and patriotism of the persons involved.Why fly Mamman Daura.”
@Chibuzo76881211: “Presidency considering reaching out to Nnamdi Kanu for peace as Mamman Daura’s health worsened in the UK.”
@ncheks2005: “Mamman Daura has embarked on an emergency medical trip to the UK. There is no good hospital in Nigeria so politicians get flown to the UK whenever they fall sick. Aisha Buhari was also flown to Dubai last week to treat ordinary neck pain. Nigeria is irredeemable.”
@Morris_Monye: “The last of the three member cabal Mamman Daura is outside the country for urgent medical attention. I wonder what is going on in the mind of President Buhari.”
@holudaray: “The truth about Buhari’s cabal, Mamman Daura and co going for medical attention every now and then is, they are aged people, they’re very old. That is the honest to God truth. So let me ask you, what is more important to your 75 year old grandpa now other than sleep or medical checkup?”
@KanteCesc: “People from a particular region are jubilating about Mamman Daura’s health, wishing death upon him and the president. Hope this hatred that has consumed you people translates to presidency in 2023 else it’ll be a pity.”
@Nasiruagahu: “With private jet,” So freaking what? You serial sociopath,do you know who m daura is? Mamman Daura managed the New Nigerian from 1969 to 1975;and a prominent member of the infamous Kaduna Mafia, a group of Nigerian businessmen, civil servants,military officers and intellectuals.”
