Nigerians who have made a pastime of trying to rubbish the memory of late Mallam Abba Kyari, ex-Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, have been advised to let the family be.
Aisha, one of Abba Kyari’s children, on Monday, via her Instagram handle, asked her father’s critics to let him rest in peace.
Aisha wrote with the user name, crackeddiamond, and had harsh words for those also she claimed had been probing her father’s whereabouts.
“My daddy, Abba Kyari is gone. Evil ones still won’t shut up. You all claimed he was the root of your problems when he was alive, now he is gone, surely all your problems died with him. Allow us that love him grieve and mourn in peace.
In apparent reference to wife of one of the popular PSquare family, she said:
“And Dear Lola Omotayo and co that were so curious about his whereabouts, I hope now that you know exactly where he is, you’re sleeping better at night.”
Kyari, since passing away as result of COVID-19, has been at the centre of a barrage of negative write ups alleging unsubstantiated malfeasance at the presidency under Buhari’s watch.
