Facts have emerged about how Senator Buruji Kashamu died.
Jungle Journalist Media Ltd has learnt that the Senator, who died today, had been at the Lagos Isolation Centre, before his condition forced his transfer.
He was said to have been on a life support machine for weeks at the hospital after slipping into a coma following Coronavirus complications.
He has been on admission at First Cardiology Consultants, in Lagos, according to reports.
Kashamu’s case, for which he has been receiving treatment for Covid-19, turned worse in the early days of August and he was subsequently moved to First Cardiology Hospital.
Jungle Journalist Media Ltd gathered that the Ogun Senator had underlying chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart and lung diseases and high blood pressure that were fast weakening 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 a higher hospital.
Kashamu had earlier tested negative at the Isolation center, and he was expected to be discharged from the centre in the last week of July. However, his condition deteriorated, hence the admission.
Kashamu represented Ogun-East senatorial district between 2015 and 2019.
May his soul rest in peace.
