Heads Turn As Obasanjo 'Shoots' Man Already Dead

--- As Senator Ibikunle Amosun Mourns Kashamu

From Ayobami Ife, Abeokuta

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo momentarily jettisoned the African's  'Say no ill of the dead' Maxim and shot the strong man of Ogun State chapter of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Buruji Kashamu, who was already down.

Kashamu, who represented the Ogun East Senatorial district at the 8th Senate, passed on yesterday at the First Cardiologist Hospital, Lagos, following complications arising from COVID - 19.

The billionaire hotelier, politician and philantropist will be buried today, Sunday, at his country home, Ijebu - Igbo, in Ijebu North Local Government Area of the state in  line with the Islamic rite.

Obasanjo who in his condolence message addressed to the Ogun State Governor, Prince  Dapo Abiodun, rued that the Senator used the "manouvre of the law and politics" to escape facing justice for alleged offence in Nigeria and abroad, however, took solace in the fact that "no legal or medical manouvre" could shield the strong man of Ogun PDP from the cold hands of death when the Creator decided his time was up.

Meanwhile, the Senator representing Ogun Central District at the Red Chamber, Senator Ibikunle Amosun,  has expressed sadness over the death of a leading politician and stakeholder of Ogun State extraction, Senator Buruji Kashamu, aged 62.

Amosun said Senator Kashamu would be remembered for his assertive presence in the political arena and uncommon doggedness.

He said:“Death, once again, has robbed us of the contribution of an enigmatic politician of the PDP, who represented Ogun East Senatorial District at the 8th Senate, our dear brother Senator Buruji Kashamu. 

"Although we belonged to different political persuasions, and disagreed on most issues, Senator Kashamu will nonetheless be remembered for his assertive presence in the political arena and uncommon doggedness.

" He fought myriad of wars with every breadth in his soul in the defence of whatever he believed in and for his personal freedom. Hate him or love him, he could not be easily ignored”

Senator Amosun prayed that the Almighty Allah, swt, would forgive Kashamu’s earthly sins and give him eternal rest. 

The immediate past Governor of the Gateway State in a statement by his media aide, Alhaji Bola Adeyemi, expressed condolences to the nuclear and political family members of the late founder and financier of the Omo Ilu Foundation, the Ijebu Igbo Community, and Ogun State as a whole.
