It is no longer news the the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari died from health complications after testing positive to the novel corona virus, and was buried at Gudu cenetery in Abuja.
However, it has been observed that the guidelines on the prevention of the possible spread of the virus by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) was not followed, hence Abuja should get ready for more cases of COVID-19.
According to a Facebook user who pointed out these observations;
“First they broke lockdown rules by flying him from Abuja to Lagos.
“The government treated him privately at First Cardiology in Ikoyi while other members of the public who have tested positive are kept in isolation centres, some people by force despite personal protests.
“His Covid 19 positive body was flown back to the Federal Capital Territory and released for burial contrary to what Lai Mohammed said that the corpse of anybody who dies from COVID-19 cannot be released for burial.
“Then over 500 people gathered for the burial effectively breaking Federal Government rule that not more than 20 or even 50 people can gather at a point in time.
“Then, they dug a shallow grave for the body in the centre of town, gudu cemetry. and some people at the burial ground neither wore masks nor any other Personal Protective Equipment especially the grave diggers. A man in Green native without PPE even touched the body whilst helping the workers in PPE.
“Some workers in PPE were even seen touching their faces and goggles after touching the body with some’s clothes visibly running the dead body under from their PPE as they lowered the body into the shallow grave. And the body was buried in just white traditional robes, no protection nothing for the people, or the environment.
“No accounting for or planning that everyone at the burial must self isolate for 14 days after the burial.
“How is this leading by example? How does a government make the rules and then shamelessly break the rules on National Television for all to see.
“Abuja should brace for the impact in the next 14days,” he said.
