The police on Wednesday prevented the breakdown of law and order at the Unity Fountain in Abuja.

Two groups, for and against Abba Kyari, chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, had stormed the garden.

Those loyal to the chief of staff staged a solidarity rally. Dancing and singing pro-Kyari songs, the supporters who wielded placards and banners, marched around the garden.

However, the rival group hurled stones and sachet water at them.

Kyari supporters were ready to retaliate but armed anti-riot policemen arrived at the scene before the situation got out of hand.

The chaotic situation continued 10 minutes after the arrival of the police.

This is the second major news item involving Kyari in the last 12 hours.

Winifred Oyo-Ita, head of the service of the federation, had confronted him inside the council chambers during the federal executive council meeting.

The reason is a no-brainer — a letter written by Oyo-Ita indicting President Muhammadu Buhari in the reinstatement of Abdulrasheed Maina somehow found its way to the media.

In the memo addressed to Kyari, Oyo-Ita maintained that the president knew about the reinstatement and that she warned him there would be a public backlash.

Oyo-Ita, usually calm, was seen angrily gesticulating in the heated argument with Kyari
