Billionaire businessman-cum-politician, Senator Buruji Kashamu, who has been receiving treatment for Covid-19, has died.
According to Global Excellence magazine earlier reported that the famous philanthropist, who was tested positive for the deadly pandemic but later confirmed to be negative by doctors at the Lagos isolation centre, was moved to the First Cardiology hospital when his condition deteriorated.
The senator, who represented Ogun East senatorial district between 2015 and 2019, few days after testing negative, was found to have underlying chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart and lung deseases and high blood pressure that reportedly weakened his immune system.
The source said that the discovery affected his body’s ability to respond as quickly to treatment at the isolation centre; hence, the need for advanced treatment at First Cardiology Hospital hospital in Lagos where he passed on Sunday evening.
Prominent Nigerians who had died receiving treatment for Covid-19 at First Cardiology Hospital includes former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi; President Buhari’s former chief of staff, Alhaji Abba Kyari, and a Lagos Senator, Bayo Osinowo.
