On Friday, April 17th, 2020, news broke that Abba Kyari, President Buhari’s powerful chief of staff had passed away from the coronavirus. He is now the highest-profile Nigerian to have died from the novel virus. Eyewitness accounts, video clips and pictures from the burial site showed that many who were in attendance were not properly ‘equipped’ to attend such a ceremony. The presidential order on social distancing was also clearly violated, calling into question on why Funke Akindele was publicly vilified and arrested while these individuals were left scott free. So the question is was it hypocritical of the politicians to attend Abba Kyari’s funeral?
