Former vice-president Atiku Abubakar took to Twitter on Saturday to lament the death of Mallam Abba Kyari.
In a reaction on Twitter, Atiku asked God to forgive Abba Kyari’s sins.
“Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un.
“I am saddened by the death of Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.
“May Allah SWT comfort his family, forgive his sins and grant him AlJannah Firdaus. Ameen”, Atiku tweeted.
It was not clear the Kyari sins Atiku sought divine forgiveness.
Kyari was a star witness for President Buhari in the legal battle against Atiku over the 2019 election.
Kyari died in Lagos in a private hospital on Friday.
His death was confirmed early Saturday in a statement by media adviser, Femi Adesina.
Since August 2015, Kyari was President Muhammadu Buhari’s chief of staff.
