It’s hard to ignore the implications of large gathering at his funeral at Gudu Cemetery, Abuja. This is at a time when the nation is combating the deadly disease and people are required to sit at home. This is barely before NollyWood actress, Funke Akindele and husband JJC would complete their 14- day community service. Funke Akindele was arrested along side her husband by the Lagos State Government over hosting a party.
The claim was that they broke the Lagos State Infectious Disease 2020 regulation under the Public Health Law. The couple was fined and landed a 14- day community service sentence. Following Kyari death and Funeral, pictures and videos showed over a hundred people in attendance WITHIN CLOSE RANGE.
These are the same people who asked us to sit at home. Why then did they not observe the social distancing rule? The violation of this rule has led more than 18 Nigerians to their early graves. Nigerians killed by security authorities enforcing the lockdown order!
Nigerians have responded negatively to this violation. The rule of a country should apply to both the ruler and the ruled. The violation no doubt has placed the lives of other Nigerians in danger as the number of confirmed COVID- 19 cases increase daily.
