Buhari’s Chief of Staff sick, flown to London

03 December 2016, 07:36

Abuja-  President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, is sick and has been flown to London for  medical treatment.

Kyari was flown to London on Thursday.

This was the second time Kyari has ended up in a hospital within the last one month, reports Sahara Reporters.

Kyari, who was present at the Kaduna home of President Buhari’s powerful nephew, Mamman Daura, during a stunning high profile raid that led to the kidnap of Ambassador Bagudu Hirse two weeks ago, was badly shaken up by the incident

Although the nature of his sickness is unknown,  government officials said Kyari had been battling the ailment for sometime.

The illness according to Punch was responsible for his long absence in the Presidential Villa recently.

A source at the Presidency said President Buhari told Mr. Kyari to take a break to go and look after his unsteady health.

The source said Buhari was already considering replacing his ailing CoS with the current Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.
