Domestic staff at the Abba Kyari residence in Kaduna and neighbours on Saturday expressed shock over the death of the former Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari who died Friday night after battling COVID-19.
The late Chief of Staff who was buried on Saturday at the Gudu cemetery in Abuja had tested positive to coronavirus in March, shortly after he returned from an official trip to Germany.
Our correspondent who visited his Kaduna home at Yahaya Iman, Rabah road found the main gate of the residence under lock and key with only domestic staff in the house.

A grim looking security guard later told Daily Trust that all family members were in Abuja and said he was not certain if and when they will return to Kaduna.

Neighbors in the quiet neighborhood said they received the death of Kyari with shock adding that they had prayed that he would get better since he was moved to Lagos for further testes and treatment about three weeks ago.
Sadiq Ibrahim who lives close to the Kyari residence described the late Chief of Staff as a gracious member of the community adding that his death was a loss to the people of Kaduna State where he had resided with his family for years.
According to Ibrahim: ”we had prayed that he would pull through and a lot of people were happy when he issued a statement few weeks ago saying he was not showing any symptoms. Unfortunately, Allah had other plans. We pray Allah grants his soul mercy.”
Hajiya Asabe Uwa who also resides in the community said she was an acquaintance of the Kyaris and said his death was a huge loss that will leave a vacuum.
Uwa stated that, ”most people do not know the family and only rely on the false information that has been spun against him in the media. He was a loving and caring husband and a wonderful father, he cared about people’s problems and always tried to help those in need.”
