The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) says all those who attended the funeral of late Abba Kyari, the former chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari on April 18, have tested negative for COVID-19. Late Kyari died on April 17 as a result of COVID-19.

There was an outcry from Nigerians after videos and pictures from the funeral, showed that those present at the funeral, disregarded all the prevention guidelines issued by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), such as social distancing, to limit the spread of COVID-19.

All those who attended the funeral were asked to immediately isolate themselves while those that work in the presidency were asked to distance themselves from the presidential villa.

According to a tweet posted on Sunday night on the FCTA handle, Mohammed Kawu, acting secretary, health and human services secretariat at the FCTA,  said all those identified and isolated, tested negative and have been reunited with their families.

“The FCT Health & Human Services Secretariat is happy to announce that the individuals exposed during the burial of late COS to the President have completed their 14days of isolation. Tests were conducted and they have all tested NEGATIVE to #COVID19,” it read.
