The billionaire businessman-cum-politician, Senator Buruji Kashamu, who has been receiving treatment for Covid-19, is dead.

Senator Kashamu, who represented Ogun East senatorial district between 2015 and 2019, few days after testing negative, was found to have underlying chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart and lung diseases and high blood pressure that were fast weakening his immune system.

It was stated that the discovery affected his body’s ability to respond as quickly to treatment at the isolation centre; hence, the need for advanced treatment at a higher hospital.

In a post shared by Ben Bruce on his Facebook page, he also confirmed the sad development, where he states thus:

“‪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.‬”

He was 62 years old.
