At least one of the questions, has been answered. A Twitter user and reporter based in London, UK, Ned Donovan who asked the Nigerian Office of Digital Engagement on Twitter, got this answer:
Below is the list:

2. Special Assistant
3. Personal Physician
4. One protocol official
5. Aide de Camp
6. Chief Security Officer

Meanwhile, Professor Femi Williams who is a certified physician in Anatomic Pathology from London and Ireland has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari is suffering from anaemia.
The president returned to the country on Friday, March 10 after an extended medical vacation in London and Professor Williams, in an interview with The Nation, said the president’s blood transfusion was an indication that he was anaemic.
He said: “We now have a pretty good idea of diagnosis, which is now comprehensive or good enough to say that the diagnosis of President Buhari’s illness is anaemia.”
