Nigerian Government Gives Reason For Not Attending Chief Of Army Staff’s Burial

The Nigerian Government has responded to the backlash it received for being absent in the burial ceremony of late Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru and 10 other military personnel.

Attahiru and ten other military officers died in the Friday’s plane crash in Kaduna and their burial took place on Saturday, which President Muhammad Buhari failed to attend.

According to the Presidency, the President needed at least 48 hours clearance before he would depart Presidential Villa to any event.

Buhari’s absence at their burial on Saturday had triggered public uproar with some Nigerians accusing him of lacking empathy.
