Abba Kyari buried in Abuja

Coronavirus infected body of the late Mallam Abba Kyari who was the Chief of staff to the Nigerian President Majr Gen. Muhammadu Buhari has been buried at Gudu Cemetery, Abuja.

This was after barring all families of victims of COVID-19 from receiving dead bodies of their loved ones, they broke same rule.

Seems the Buhari's administration is deliberately endangering public health by exposing an infected body?

Kyari's passing shouldn't be used to endanger Nigerians. The gathering makes a mockery of #Covid_19 advice by the NCDC.
