Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has reacted to the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu from Covid-19 complications.
This is contained in a condolence letter to Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun dated Saturday, August 8.
“I received the sad news of the demise of Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashamu) a significant citizen of Ogun State.
“The life and history of the departed have lessons for those of all us on this side of the veil.
“Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashamu) in his lifetime used the manoeuvre 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 manoeuvre 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.”
Kashamu had battled to stop his extradition to the United States of America over drug related charges.
