Social Distancing was not Practiced at Abba Kyari’s Burial & Nigerians Aren’t so Pleased



The news of Abba Kyari‘s death from coronavirus took the nation by surprise on Saturday and he has since been laid to rest according to Muslim customs, at a private cemetery in Abuja.

His burial, however, has become a bone of contention on Twitter as many Nigerians are displeased that the attendees did not practice social distancing, an issue which less than two weeks ago landed actress Funke Akindele, her husband, as well as others in police custody over the birthday party thrown for her husband. Funke Akindele and husband, JJC Skillz were both sentenced to 14 days community service as well as a fine of N100,000 each.

The number of those who attended the burial rites are more than 20, which is direct disobedience to the regulations on curbing the deadly pandemic.
