Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL) has said the late Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, died of diabetes and not Coronavirus as stated by the Presidency.
Chief Press Secretary of BNYL, Richard Dianabasi Odung, made this known in a statement sent to reporters on Saturday.
Speaking further, the Biafra group said reports have confirmed that the 82-year-old politician has been battling diabetes before he contracted COVID-19 in Germany.
The group described all those surrounding the President as old men and lifeless, mentioning the name of the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed.
The Biafra group, however, urged the Nigerian government to relax the lockdown in the country.
The group said, “Looking at Buhari’s cabinet and those he surrounded himself with, you will discover that Nigeria is administered by lifeless people.
”They are all old men looking dead, starting from the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed.
”The Chief of Staff to the President has been battling diabetes before he was confirmed positive to COVID-19 by the NCDC.
”Not every death in Nigeria should be linked to the Coronavirus.
”We urge the Nigerian government to relax the lockdown.”
