Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed sadness over the death of Senator Kashamu Buruji, who died of COVID-19 on Saturday, August 8.
In a letter of condolence sent to the Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, Obasanjo however said the deceased Senator used the instruments of law and politics to evade justice over the criminal charges leveled against him in and outside Nigeria but could not evade death.
The former President said the death of the PDP stalwart was sad but that his life and history has many lessons for those on this side of the veil.
“I received the sad news of the demise of Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashamu), a significant citizen of Ogun State. Please accept my condolences and that of my family on this irreparable loss.
The life and history of the departed have lessons for those of us on this side of the veil.
Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashmu) in his lifetime used the maneuver of law and politics to escape from facing justice on the 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.” Obasanjo’s condolence letter read
