A former lawmaker, Senator Buruji Kashamu, is dead.
Kashamu, who represented Ogun-East senatorial district between 2015 and 2019, died at First Cardiology Consultants, Lagos, according to his friend, Ben Murray-Bruce, in a tweet.
The hospital is the same facility where a former Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi; and the President’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, died.
It was learnt that Kashamu, who had diabetes and high blood pressure, was admitted at the hospital for over a week before passing away.
Confirming his death, a former lawmaker, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, said the deceased would be sorely missed.
Murray-Bruce wrote on his verified Twitterhandle, “I have just lost my good friend of forever to COVID-19. Until his death, Sen. Buruji Kashamu and I were inseparable. He died today at First Cardiology Consultants, in Lagos. May his gentle soul rest in peace. I pray his family and loved ones the fortitude to bear this heavy loss.”
