As many well meaning Nigerians big and small mourn with the family of late senator Buruji Kashamu who died on Saturday 8th August 2020 as a result of health complications induced by Covid-19 infections, the governor and the family of the deceased were stunned by a rather mocking condolence letter they received from Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo.

The late 62-year-old Kashamu Buruji was the immediate past senator representing Ogun East at the Nigerian Senate.

But unusually in his letter, Obasanjo says dead Kashamu Buruji escaped justice.

Obasanjo who described Kashamu’s death as a great loss in a letter on Saturday, however, lamented that “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.”

The letter reads; “I have received the sad news of the death of Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashamu), a prominent Ogun State resident. I extend my heartfelt condolences to my family and friends.

“Senator 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,” Obasanjo said.

“But no legal, political, cultural, social, or even medical manoeuvre could stop the cold hand of death when the Creator of all of us decides that the time is up.

“May Allah forgive his sin and accept his soul into Aljanah, and may God grant his family and friends fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” Obasanjo condolence letter on late Buruji Kashamu read.
