President Muhammadu Buhari is on his way back to Nigeria after an emergency medical trip to London, local newspapers reported on Friday, quoting sources and referring to a tweet.
Mr. Buhari traveled to the United Kingdom on Tuesday to meet with his doctor who requested the immediate meeting, the presidency said last Monday.
Unconfirmed reports said he collapsed in Washington DC after his meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House on April 30.
He left Washington DC the next day for Nigeria but his plane ended up landing in London to see his doctor.
Few days after, he returned to London for a four day medical trip. Last year, Mr. Buhari spent months treating himself in London.
Many have said he should resign or not run for another term in office next year. But the Nigerian leader has repeatedly said he has done well and would run again.
