A video of a man discarding protective gear by the roadside after helping in the burial of Chief of staff to President Buhari, Abba Kyari has gone viral online.
The alleged pallbearer could be seen recklessly taking off the possibly infected PPE and leaving it where an unsuspecting citizen could gain access to it.
Nigerians had taken to social media to condemn the act and call out the government for the entire burial ceremony which involved flouting of social distancing.
President Buhari’s media aide, Bashir Ahmed had reacted to the video claiming it was false as the PPE’s used were gathered and burnt. He had however deleted the tweet minutes later causing speculations about his sincerity.
