Kashamu, a governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 election in Ogun State, died of COVID-19 complications on Saturday at the age of 62.
Kashamu had faced extradition to the United States over alleged drug trafficking which was evaded until his death
“The life and history of the departed have lessons for those of 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 manoeuver could stop the cold hand of death when the creator of all of us decides that the time is up,” the former military head of state said, while praying that Allah forgive Kashamu’s sins.
In his reaction to Obasanjo’s letter, Ayodele Fayose wrote that the elder statesman will also face death one day and he shouldn’t be surprised at what the world is going to write about him.
