Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has written a condolence letter to the Ogun state governor, Mr Dapo Abiodun, over the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu which was announced on Saturday and has alleged late senator Buruji Kashamu of yielding to the cold hand of death despite escaping from justice over an alleged corruption.
The Letter reads:
August 8, 2020.
Prince Dapo Abiodun,
Executive Governor of Ogun State,
Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
LETTER OF CONDOLENCE
I received the sad news of the demise of Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashamu) a significant citizen of Ogun State.
Please accept my condolence and that of my family on this irreparable loss.
The life and history of the departed have lessons for those of all us on this side of the veil.
Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashamu) in his lifetime used the maneuver 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 maneuver 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.
