Nigerians have taken to social media to call out the federal government for organizing a funeral for late Abba Kyari, Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari amid the lockdown in Lagos and Abuja.
Kyari who died in a Lagos hospital from coronavirus complications on Friday, April 17th was laid to rest on Saturday in Abuja.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had issued a lockdown order which was also legalized after he signed the Quarantine Act, which prohibits Nigerians in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun states from organisation or attending any social gathering as the country battles the coronavirus outbreak.
Taking to Twitter, Nigerians called the Nigerian leaders hypocrites who make laws and then go ahead to break same. Some demanded the government issue an apology to popular Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele who was recently arrested and convicted for organizing a private birthday party for her husband at their home in Lagos.
