The Nigerian High Commission in the UK has reportedly picked up the hospital bills for Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a recent report by SaharaReporters, Kyari’s medical bill was picked up by the Nigerian envoy in the UK when the president’s chief aide was treated at Wellington Hospital, St. John’s Wood, London, in December 2016.

It was further reported that Adah Simon Ogah, Nigeria’s acting High Commissioner, had signed a letter confirming the embassy's preparedness to foot the medical bill of the Chief of Staff.
