A concourse had on Sunday massed at the late former Senator Buruju Kashamu’s Ijebu-Igbo country home in Ogun State to pay their last respect to him.
Sympathisers and supporters including politicians had breached the COVID-19 weekend lockdown and other protocols to witness the carnival-like interment of Kashamu, who died of COVID-19 complications.
The 62-year-old ex-Ogun East Senatorial District representative in the 8th National Assembly was buried about 12:50pm after he passed on at the First Cardiology Consultants, Lagos, on Saturday .
A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party, Kashamu contested Ogun governorship poll in March 2019 against APC Gov. Dapo Abiodun.
In 2018, he was expelled from the party and was later quashed by an Abuja High Court in October 2018.
Gov. Abiodun had earlier in the day paid a condolence visit to the family.
