This report given by the Nigeria Center For Disease Control, Kano has raised series of reactions and comments on social media, because Mr Magaji became very popular across the country after he posts some comments which were perceived to be celebratory concerning the death of late Kyari.
Engr.Mu’azu who flaunted the news of the death of the Late Chief Of Staff on his Facebook Page, with celebratory captions, stated that his posts were rather misunderstood and he would never mock or celebrate the death of the elder statesman publicly, He said;
“As a Muslim and a patriotic Nigerian,I was only misunderstood by the people,to have thought that I was mocking Kyari’s death,the truth is I never did”.
