The Senior Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs, in Nigeria’s presidential villa, Sarki Abba, has tested positive for Coronavirus.
Total News24 gathered that Abba tested positive for the virus two weeks ago and had not been seen on the Presidential Villa since then.
Sarki Abba is said to be President Muhammadu Buhari’s closest aide.
A source in the Presidency said those, who came in contact with him had also been asked to self-isolate.
The source said the current status of Abba remains unknown weeks after.
“Abba tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago but his current status as we speak is unknown, whether he has tested negative or not.
“All I know is there’s conspiracy of silence with regards to his status,” the source said.
Part of Abba’s duties before testing positive for COVID-19 was to come out to pick visitors when they arrive the Presidential Villa to see President Buhari.
He also adjusts the President’s seat and moves with him everywhere.
