According to Thisday, when President Buhari arrived at the Cedarcrest hospital Abuja where Yusuf is being treated, he had a sad countenance.

”The president was at the hospital on Wednesday night. He was very devastated when he saw his son, Yusuf, in a very critical situation.
He was shaking his head, while looking at his son and thereafter angrily reprimanded his security officials for allowing Yusuf to leave home at that time of the day for power-bike racing.
From the way the president spoke, it appears the security aides are in trouble. He spoke angrily.”
The source added;
”While the doctors were working to stabilise him, Dambazau kept appealing to the doctors to do everything possible to stabilise Yusuf, saying the president would find it very difficult to bear the pain if anything happens to his son.
The president had directed that Yusuf be treated at this hospital for now. In any case he is still in coma with serious pain; so, he cannot survive long-flight for now.
He still needs few days to come out of the coma before any consideration of flying him out of the country for more medical attention.”

He explained that the Compulsory Treatment and Care for Victims of Gunshot Act, 2017 provides for the compulsory treatment and care for victims of gunshots and for related matters.
“Specifically, the Act stipulates that a person with a gunshot wound shall be received for immediate and adequate treatment by any hospital in Nigeria with or without initial monetary deposit.
Furthermore, a person with a gunshot wound shall not be subjected to inhuman and degrading treatment or torture by any person or authority, including the police and other security agencies.
“Anti-Torture Act, 2017 makes comprehensive provisions for penalizing the acts of torture and other cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment or punishment, and prescribes penalties for the commission of such acts.”
The six Acts have come into effect as laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
