Things you should know about late Senator Buruji Kashamu of Ogun State

Things you should know about late Senator Buruji Kashamu of Ogun State

Senator Buruji Kashamu died Saturday at a Lagos hospital due to COVID-19 illnesses
Here are some stuff about the late Senator you should know:

From 2015 to 2019, Kashamu represented the senatorial district of Ogun East.

Kashamu was the nominee of the People’s Democratic Party for the Ogun State governorship in the 2019 election.

In 1998, a grand jury in the Northern District of Illinois, US, indicted him for conspiracy to import and distribute heroin.

The United kingdom Metropolitan Police detained Kashamu, who was traveling with a Benin passport, on 18 December 1998.

He returned from Britain to Nigeria in 2003 after a British court rejected a US extradition appeal for Kashamu’s identity confusion.

Kashamu had told the court that he was not the drug-smuggling conspiracy leader but his brother, Adewale Kashamu, who is closely resembling him.

Around 1n 2015, his residence was stand-off after an attempt by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency to arrest him for extradition to the United States.

The FG was barred from extraditing him by a federal high court in Abuja in May 2020.

He sued Olusegun Obasanjo, the former president, for libel for claiming that Kashamu was a fugitive from US justice.

Kashamu was the founder of Western Lotto Limited, one of the owners of the Nigerian lotteries.

May his soul rest in peace.
