Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode refuted reports circulating in the social media that President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari has died.
Kyari, who last week Monday tested positive for the deadly coronavirus after returning from a trip in Germany, has remained under self-isolation in an undisclosed place.
However, there were reports on Thursday night claiming that Kyari has died, a report which has been denied by Fani-Kayode via his official twitter handle.
The rumour was started Thursday via a tweet by Kemi Olunloyo, a pharmacist, who now claimed to be an investigative journalist.
She claimed ‘a high ranking member of President Buhari’s Cabinet has DIED from coronavirus complications’.
Fani-Kayode says inasmuch as he might not support the administration of President Buhari, wishing death on his political opponent is far from his character.
“It is not true that Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to @MBuhari, is dead. Those that are behind that rumour are vicious and heartless. I remain opposed to the @MBuhari admin. but to wish or proclaim someone dead simply because you disagree with him politically is unacceptable,” he said.
