The Nigerian Presidency has finally given reasons for President Muhammadu Buhari’s absence at the Funeral Ceremony of Late Chief of Army Staff, Ibrahim Attahiru and 10 others in Abuja on Saturday, May 22nd.

According to the Presidency, Mr Buhari needed at least 48 hours of clearance before he would depart Presidential Villa for any event. Presidential spokesperson, Lauretta Onochie wrote on her social media page;

“For a President to be at any funeral or event outside the Presidential Villa, the event must have at least 48 hours for intelligence operatives to do surveillance and clearance before the President can go based on the Security report.”

“In a case where the COAS and his team died yesterday and had to be buried today, you don’t expect the President to go there where there is no security clearance.”

“The minimum time of 48 hours wasn’t met. In insecurity parlance, funeral ceremonies are where politically exposed persons face more risks.”
