Buruji Kashamu, a former senator representing Ogun East in the National Assembly, is dead.
He was said to have died at the First Cardiology Consultant Hospital in Lagos.
The hospital is the same facility where Abiola Ajimobi, a former governor of Oyo State, and Abba Kyari, the President Muhammadu Buhari’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 giving up the ghost.
“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,” Ben Murray-Bruce, senator representing Bayelsa East tweeted.
