Legit.ng recalls that Kyari, considered the most powerful chief of staff in the history of Nigeria, died on Friday, April 17, at the First Consultants Hospital in Ikoyi, Lagos after weeks of battling with complications from Covid-19 infection.
Kyari was buried on Saturday, April 18, according to Islamic rites. He was interred at exactly 11.20am at the military cemetery in Abuja’s Gudu neighbourhood amidst tears from family members and supporters.
While Kyari's death is a big blow that left a huge scar in the hearts of friends and family members, it is apparently a big loss in the Buhari-led administration which he co-managed with his powerful influence as the chief of staff.
