Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain Senator Buruji Kashamu is dead.
He died of COVID-19 complications, Reporters At Large reliably gathered.
Kashamu, who represented Ogun-East senatorial district between 2015 and 2019, died at First Cardiology Consultants, Lagos.
Senator Ben Murray-Bruce said the deceased would be sorely missed.
He tweeted: “I have just lost my good friend of forever to COVID-19. Until his death, Sen. Buruji Kashamu and I were inseparable.
“He died today at First Cardiology Consultants, in Lagos. May his gentle soul rest in peace. I pray his family and loved ones the fortitude to bear this heavy loss.”
