Kyari had tested positive for the coronavirus in late March following his trip to Munich, Germany.

He had tested positive for the virus while his principal, Buhari, was said to be negative.

President Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and some governors, ministers and other top government officials had mingled with Kyari shortly before he tested positive for the coronavirus.

Kyari, who was from Borno state, northeast Nigeria, was a lawyer and banker.

He studied at the University of Warwick and University of Cambridge, earning a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a law degree respectively.
