President Buhari's media aide. Garba Shehu has reacted to the outrage that ensued after a large number of people were spotted at the burial ceremony of President Buhari's Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.
Speaking to journalists after the event, Garba Shehu stated that there was nothing they could do.
The Presidential aide who insisted that the burial ceremony was a private one, said most of those who turned up for it were not invited and they could not have brought in soldiers to flog and chase them away, because they were there to pay their last respect to the late CoS.
Garba Shehu further revealed that the burial ceremony was delayed in their attempt to maintain social distancing, but had to proceed as more people kept trooping to the cemetery.
