The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has vowed to abandon the agitation for the Republic of Biafra if President Muhammadu Buhari’s office in Aso Rock, is accessed after the death of Abba Kayri.
Naija News had reported earlier that Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to the President died of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Friday, April 17.
A statement on the micro-blogging site, Twitter by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity confirmed the development.
The Presidential media aide tweeted: “The deceased had tested positive to the ravaging COVID-19 and had been receiving treatment. But he died on Friday, April 17, 2020.
“May God accept his soul. Funeral arrangements will be announced shortly,” Adesina had tweeted.
Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari, passes on. May God rest his soul. Amen. Funeral arrangements to be announced soon.

Reacting to Kyari’s death during a live broadcast on Saturday, Kanu, who is on exile in the United Kingdom, alleged that the Presidential office cannot be accessed because the palm print of late Kyari is needed to open the door to the President‘s office.
Speaking on Radio Biafra, the IPOB leader said: “If you can go into the presidential office and stream from that office, I will abandon Biafra. The key to the office is lying somewhere in the grave in Abuja. You cannot access the office.
“They need Abba Kyari to open the Presidential office. They need to do the palm print of Abba Kyari to open the office,” Kanu alleged.
