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.
