The chief of staff to President Muhammad Buhari, Abba Kyari is dead.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, announced on Saturday morning via his Twitter handle.
Mr Kyari had tested positive to the Coronavirus on March 23, few weeks after his return from Germany.
Six days later, he issued a statement on his decision to move to Lagos for “further test and observation.”
In his statement, he said; “I have made my own care arrangements to avoid further burdening the public health system, which faces so many pressures.”
“This is a precautionary measure: I feel well, but last week I tested positive for Coronavirus, the pandemic that is sweeping the world. I have followed all protocols the government has announced to self-isolate and quarantine,” he said.
