Ogun State politician and businessman, Buruji Kashamu, also known as Eso Jinadu is dead.
According to Ben Murray-Bruce, who broke the news via his twitter page, Kashamu died of COVID-19 on Saturday at First Cardiology Consultants in Lagos at the age of 62.
“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,” Murray-Bruce Tweeted.
Kashamu served as a Senator, representing Ogun East in the 8th National Assembly.
In 2018, he was expelled from the Peoples Democratic Party, a decision later voided by an Abuja High Court in October 2018. He was the governorship candidate of PDP in Ogun State during the 2019 general elections.
