Senator Buruji Kashamu dies of COVID-19

A former senator representing Ogun-East senatorial district, Buruji Kashamu, has died of COVID-19 complications at the First Cardiology Hospital in Lagos.

His death was announced by his “friend” and former colleague in the Senate Ben Murray-Bruce.

“I have just lost my good friend of forever to COVID-19,” Murray Bruce said on Twitter.

“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.”

Kashamu was the third politician and high-profile Nigerian to die of COVID-19 complications at First Cardiology.

Abba Kyari, the former chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari and Senator Abiola Ajimobi, who was the immediate past governor of Oyo State, also died at the hospital.
