Daughter of Abba Kyari, late chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha has berated her father’s critics for always attacking him.
Naija News recalls that Abba Kyari had on April 17 died from coronavirus (COVID-19) complications a few weeks after he had tested positive for the novel disease.
Before Abba Kyari’s death, some Nigerians had taken to social media to ask for the whereabouts after he was moved to a private facility for treatment.
In a now-deleted clip, shared via her Instagram page, Lola Omotayo, wife of Peter Okoye, had called on the Lagos Health Commissioner, Akin Abayomi, to be more accountable with respect to the information on Kyari’s health and whereabouts.
“Guys, so the Lagos state commissioner of health just said he doesn’t know Abba Kyari is currently located. Abba Kyari is Buhari’s Chief of Staff and we don’t know where he is?” she asked.
“Whether he is in Lagos receiving treatment or in Abuja at home, self-isolating, did he even go anywhere to get treatment, or is he out of the country? Nobody knows.
“How can you say you speak to him over the phone or Whatsapp and you just presumed that he is fully recovered. We need to know as Nigerians if he is fully recovered.”
But on Monday, Aisha took to her Instagram story to reacts to Omotayo and other Nigerians after the death of her father.
She wrote with the user name (@crackeddiamond): “My daddy, Abba Kyari is gone. Evil ones still won’t shut up. You all claimed he was the root of your problems when he was alive, now he is gone, surely all your problems died with him.
“Allow us that love him mourn in peace. And dear Lola Omotayo and co that were so curious about his whereabouts, I hope now that you know exactly where he is, you’re sleeping better at night.”
