The remains of the late Mallam Abba Kyari, former Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, is slated for burial today in Abuja.
His body arrived in the Federal Capital Terittory, FCT some hours ago and he is currently being prepared for final burial.
Announcement had been made that the Abba Kyari’s burial would be a private one, in line with the guidelines set by the NDDC for patients who died of coronavirus.
However videos from the scene of the area where Kyari will be buried show a crowd presence.
