JUST IN: Presidency to move Abba Kyari to Lagos for treatment after contracting Coronavirus

Published

on

Plans are underway by Nigeria’s Presidency to move Abba Kyari, Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, to Lagos for urgent medical attention after he was confirmed to have been infected with Coronavirus.

Following the confirmation of the situation on Tuesday, a top government source in the know told SaharaReporters that Kyari may be moved to Lagos any moment from now in an attempt to save his life.

Lagos has one of the most functional infectious diseases treatment and isolation centres in the country.

An Italian man, who first imported the virus into Nigeria in February, was successfully treated at the Lagos centre at Yaba before being declared free of the pandemic and released to go home.

In the face of a global lockdown and with many countries with functional health systems closing their borders to international visitors, the Lagos Centre is perhaps one of the few places to successfully deal with Kyari’s case at this time.

Already, activities at Aso Villa, Nigeria’s seat of power, have been shut down to avoid a further spread of the virus.

Since returning from the trip abroad, Kyari has had contacts with several prominent persons including Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Buhari, Babagana Kingibe, a prominent member of the ‘cabal’ and Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello.

Aliko Dangote, Governor Bello Masari of Katsina and Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, are among others that Kyari came in contact with after returning from his foreign trip.

The Presidency is yet to issue an official statement on the matter.
