The national flag and other flags at the Presidential Villa in Abuja are currently flying at half-mast in line with a directive issued by President Muhammadu Buhari.

This in honour of the late Chief of Army Staff Ahmed Attahiru and other military officers, who died in a plane crash on Friday.

President Buhari on Sunday directed that the national flag be flown at half-mast in all public buildings, facilities, and official residences across the country.

The directive was announced by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, who revealed that the gesture would last for three days.

Media aides to President Buhari, Bashir Ahmad, and Lauretta Onochie shared the pictures using their official Twitter handle.

“The National Flags flying at half-mast at the State House, Abuja and across the country, in honour of the late Chief of Army Staff and other military officers, who died in a plane crash on Friday,” Bashir Ahmad tweeted.
