It is no more news that Abba Kyari is late. He died of Coronavirus last evening.

The body of President Mohammad Buhari’s former chief of staff Abba Kyari was flown to Abuja on Saturday morning in a private aircraft

The plane touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at 9 am.

On hand to receive the body were government officials including former Secretary to the government of the Federation (SGF) and Chief MKO Abiola’s former running mate, Babagana Kingibe, the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ahmed Rufai Abubakar and Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

The corpse is currently being conveyed to Defence House, located in Maitama for the fidau prayers before the burial at a cemetery in Abuja with only a few persons allowed to attend.

Kyari was suspected to have contracted the novel coronavirus when he visited Germany in early March multiple sources said. The presidency did not deny or confirm the rumours at the time.
