A Nigerian lawyer, Femi Falana, has asked the federal government to investigate the circumstances surrounding the treatment and death of the president’s chief of staff, Abba Kyari.

Falana said call of the probe became necessary following the disclosure that Kyari was being treated in a private hospital contrary to the disclosure of the health minister, Osagie Ehanire, that no private hospital has been accredited to manage COVID-19 case in Nigeria, The Nation reports.

The lawyer pointed out that there was a breach of the fundamental rule of COVID-19 guidelines on the treatment of persons with the virus in Nigeria.

The lawyer also said the crowd at the burial of Kyari violated the NCDC guidelines on social distancing.

Upon the conclusion of the burial, video clips have been trending in the social media showing the crowd and the serial breaches of the NCDC guidelines by highly placed public officers and other members of the public at the burial site,” he said.
