Buruji Kashamu: Former Nigerian Senator Is Dead
Former lawmaker representing Ogun-East Senatorial District and businessman, Buruji Kashamu, is dead.
Mr Kashamu died Saturday at the First Cardiology Consultants Hospital in Lagos, his friend and former colleague at the Senate, Ben Murray-Bruce, confirmed.
“I have just lost my good friend of forever to #COVID19. 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,” Mr Murray-Bruce wrote on Twitter.
Kashamu has added to the growing list of high profile Nigerians, who died at First Cardiology Hospital.
Recall that late Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari, was treated for Coronavirus at the same hospital until he died in April.
Also, former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, and lawmaker representing Lagos East Senatorial district at the National Assembly, Adebayo Osinowo, both died at the hospital in June.
Nigeria has so far recorded over 45,000 infections since the pandemic broke out in February.
