Former Kaduna Senator, Shehu Sani, has joined many to pay condolences to the Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari over the death of his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.

Abba Kyari

Abba Kyari died on Friday night.

Shehu Sani in his message on Twitter wrote: “The President has lost a trusted and loyal friend”.


Kyari had suffered several allegations over his interference in the Buhari Administration.

The most recent before his death was the Memo released by the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno.

“Abba Kyari, is one of the major impediments to Nigeria’s national security interest, the National Security Adviser, wrote in a memo last December.

Mr Monguno’s hands-on account of a connection between Mr Kyari’s alleged ‘meddlesomeness’ and an acute spectre of insecurity that has clutched the country was contained in a series of confidential circulars he addressed to top administration officials on national security.

The NSA also accused the chief of staff of sidestepping the president’s directive to impose his own decision for implementation, a claim that social media commentary said was all but a direct accusation of treason against Mr Kyari.
