President Muhammad Buhari’s son, Yusuf Buhari, who had a bike accident that left him in need of a brain surgery alongside his friend, Bashir Gwandu, has been accused of secretly acquiring two BMW power bikes, worth a whopping $157,000 (N57million) each from Germany, without his dad’s approval.

According to a report by Daily Post, President Muhammad Buhari didn’t know of the existence of his son Yusuf’s power bikes. He also didn’t know Yusuf Buhari always snuck out at night to go race on the bikes at his friend, Gwandu’s place.
