The Senior Special Assistant to the on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu has replied critics, saying there is nothing wrong in denying them access into the State House after they returned from burial rites of the late Chief of staff, Mallam Abba Kyari.


Garba Shehu and top aides of President Muhammadu Buhari were on Saturday denied access into the State House having participated in prayers for the remains of Abba Kyari.  They crowded in a manner considered dangerous in the face of coronavirus pandemic as some of the sympathisers did not wear face mask as preventive measures.
Buhari’s aides came under heavy criticism from Nigerians who accused them of breaking coronavirus preventive measures with some people calling for their arrest.
