The former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has reacted to Buruji Kashamu’s death in a statement signed by his spokesman, Kehinde Akinyemi.
Obasanjo mentioned that the late Senator Buruji Kashamu’s life and history left a lot of lessons for those of us on this side of the veil.
According to the statement, “Senator Buruji Kashamu 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 when the Creator of all of us decides that the time is up.
“May Allah forgive his sin and accept his soul into Aljanah, and may God grant his family and friends fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
Senator Buruji Kashamu died from Covid-19 complications on Saturday, 8th August, 2020
