Known for his controversial money and corruption politics, former Senator Buruji Kashamu, allegedly indicted in the United States and renowned as a “notorious drug kingpin”, is the latest to fall under the axe of Corona Virus.
More than others, Corona virus in Nigeria seems to have knocked off powerful cabal and politicians like former defacto president, Abba Kyari among others.
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.
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. pic.twitter.com/OJGIt0VK3n— Ben Murray-Bruce (@benmurraybruce) August 8, 2020
