Some Nigerians on twitter have expressed anger over the failure of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to attend the burial of the late Chief of Amy Staff, Ibrahim Attahiru on Saturday.
Attahiru and 10 other military personnel died on Friday in a plane crash at the Kaduna International airport.
See reactions below:
Ask me where these governors were when the burial of Ibrahim Attahiru, COAS and 10 others was ongoing?
They were in Kano the same day for the wedding of Abiru Rahman Malami, AGF's son. The same burial the C-in-C and Osinbajo missed.
The heart of a man is desperately wicked. pic.twitter.com/nLUPqm8MmY

The COAS has been buried. 4 Generals, gone. The C-in-C refusing to attend their burials, in d same city, is odd.
At a time when ISWAP & remnants of BH are lurking, this evident disregard for d forces is disquieting.
If sth is wrong with our President, Nigerians deserve to know pic.twitter.com/alPmHAe6P8

The refusal of the C in C to attend the funeral of the COAS is enough reason for a huge number of young soldiers to quit the Army.
Why would you want to give your life for an ungrateful leadership? Worried for my lil bro and friends.
Dying for nothing is not allowed.

If the C in C of the Armed Forces @MBuhari had done right by honouring his officers who made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of Nigeria,we won't be here arguing about a rally or a wedding both of which were probably planned before the tragic plane crash! #ChiefofArmyStaff

There is absolutely no excuse for the CinC @MBuhari failure to deliver a national address – attend the burial of his Army Chief, DMI and others killed in active duty.
The president has said nothing on the Alpha Jet Pilots that went missing 52 days ago.

The Chief of Army Staff and 10 other army officers were buried today in Abuja. Abuja not Paris.
Guess what? The CinC, Mr. Muhammadu Buhari was nowhere to be found, neither was his vice.
More like the "We no send" attitude.
