Abba Kyari Reportedly Sick Suspected To Be Coronavirus, Buhari & Osinbajo In Danger

Malam Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari is said to be seriously ill and is suspected to be infected with Coronavirus.

A top government source told SaharaReporters on Monday that Kyari has been seriously “down” since returning from a trip abroad.

Kyari visited Germany and Egypt and only returned this week, giving credence to the fact that he may have indeed been infected with the virus.

Another source confided in ElombahNews that suspicions are high over the well-being of President Buhari himself, as well as his deputy, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

The source said that with people around him suspected to be down with the deadly virus, including his daughter who has been in isolation for five days, and his Chief of Staff, the president has cause to be worried.

Egypt has 327 confirmed cases of Coronavirus and 14 deaths while Germany has 29,056 infections and 123 deaths.

Though coughing severely, Kyari is said to have been attending meetings including with Buhari, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, ministers and other members of the Federal Executive Council.

The latest development comes hours after a leaked memo showed Kyari telling Nigerian legislators, who recently returned from foreign trips, to submit themselves for Coronavirus test.

On Monday, Nigeria confirmed its first Coronavirus death after a former Managing Director of Pipelines and Products Marketing Company, a subsidiary of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Suleiman Achimugu, succumbed to the virus in Abuja.
