A surgical procedure carried out on Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Saturday, was successful, according to a statement by his doctors.
Osinbajo announced his admission into an undisclosed hospital for a surgery in his leg.
Osinbajo had made the announcement on his verified Twitter page on Saturday evening.
However, a statement signed by Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi, medical director, Duchess International Hospital, indicated that the vice-president would be discharged within a few days.
“The Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, GCON, was admitted to the Duchess International Hospital GRA, Ikeja, Lagos State, today on account of a fracture of his right femur (thigh bone), possibly related to a longstanding injury associated with a game of squash,” the statement by Dosunmu-Ogunbi reads.
