Former Nigerian Senator, Buruji Kashamu, Is Dead

Sen. Kashamu Buruji was a businessman and politician who died on Saturday 8th August, 2020 at the First Cardiology Hospital, Lagos after being sick from Covid-19 related complications.


He was initially admitted to an isolation centre where he was receiving treatment for more than a month before he was moved to First Cardiology Hospital where he gave up the ghost early yesterday.


At a point, it seemed he was recovering and he was even able to make telephone calls to those he had business and political differences with. One of those he called is the popular lotto merchant. He just wanted to make peace with everyone.


Sen. Kashamu Buruji born in Ogun State on 19 May, 1958.


He started his education at Ansarudeen Primary School, Ijebu Igbo and left in 1972 to complete his primary school education at St. John Modern School, Lagos. He then attended evening classes at Igbobi College while working as a licensing agent.

He later went to London where he took courses in Business Management at Pitman College, London.


He was a businessman who had his hands in hospitality business, car sales and supply and construction.


He went into politics later in life and became a senator. He was also a governorship candidate of one of the political parties in 2019 where he had his running mate as Dr. Reuben Abati.


Ijebu Igbo, his home town is in a mourning mood as he touched many lives while alive.


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.


The hospital is a top choice among wealthy Nigerians seeking cardiovascular treatment and has been in operation since 2008.


It had handled a handful of Coronavirus patients among Nigerian politicians and elites in recent times.
