As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic lingers, the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, died on Friday last week.

Barely 24 hours after the Presidency announced his death, Kyari was laid to rest at the Gudu Cemetery in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

Here are some of the best photos from last week:
