Kashamu: OBJ Mourns, Says Late Senator Couldn’t Escape Death Despite Evading Justice

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has condoled with Governor Dapo Abiodun on the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu.

In a condolence letter to Abiodun by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo said the death of the PDP stalwart was sad but noted the life and history of the departed have lessons for those on this side of the veil.

Kashamu, who represented Ogun East at the Senate in the 8th National Assembly and contested the gubernatorial ticket of the state on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) with Governor Abiodun, died in a hospital in Lagos on Saturday of COVID-19 complications.

OBJ said that Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashmu) in his lifetime used the maneuver of law and politics to escape from facing justice on alleged criminal offence in Nigeria and outside Nigeria, but no legal, political, cultural, social or even medical maneuver could stop the cold hand of death.

He however pray to Allah to forgive his sin and accept his soul into Aljanah, and may God grant his family and friends fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
