A shocking revelation emerged yesterday with a trending video on social media of late Senator Buruji Kashamu’s phone conversation with his long time enemy, Chief Kessington Adebutu aka Baba Ijebu.
The linked video showed Late Kashamu (who was on hospital bed as at the time of the call) begging Chief Adebutu on phone.
Though,many people have condermed the well respected Odole of Oodua on this,but it was a confirmation of many peoples doubt that the late Senator didn’t die of Covid-19.
The death of Senator Kashamu was not just a blow on the family,it is a mystery that creates an unexplainable gap in the political atmosphere in the state.
He was considered as a big power wreastler who never loss a battle with his financial and mobilisation power.
The video shown political and business transaction “go wrong”, between the late Senator and the Baba Ijebu family, expecially the loss of Hon Ladi Adebutu in the last general election.
The late Senator begged Baba Ijebu in the video to forgive him all he had done to his(Kessington Adebutu)lotto business, promising to support Hon Ladi Adebutu in the next gubernatorial election.
The trending video have been seen as a vendetta on the dead.In a response by one Ibrahim odunuga,he said” the act of releasing the video was not only cheeky but also petty and clearly exposed Chief Adebutu as inhuman, self-centred, desperate and ungodly. There is a Yoruba saying that “it is saddening if you meet an elder where you are supposed to meet a child, and very shameful if you meet stupidity where you are supposed to meet sense”.
He also added that,”Prince Buruji Kashamu took ill from Abuja where he went to sign terms of settlement with National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC). That was the sickness that took him, after he had tested negative twice to Covid-19. From his sick bed, he made a phone call to the person he probably suspected to be behind his ordeal. It was a voice call. But while answering the voice call, the old man got someone else to video-record the conversation without the knowledge of his caller. Prince Kashamu was begging the old Adebutu and promising to do everything to placate him, including handing over and signing his (Kashamu’s) lottery business to Adebutu.
Adebutu, knew Kashamu was calling from hospital bed, yet he showed no pity. He made a passive “God will forgive all of us” comment but was still asking about Kashamu’s sincerity and thereafter ordered him to go and withdraw all the court cases against him and his lottery company, cases that he, Adebutu, despite his influence peddling and humongous ill-gotten wealth could not legally dismantled.
It is also revealing that Prince Kashamu maintained repeatedly in the conversation that he did not do anything against Adebutu and mentioned one Segun (Adebutu’s son) as a witness to several efforts he made to work with and carry Adebutu along.”
Earlier before the video, former governor,Otunba Gbenga Daniel also said late Senator Kashamu had handed the party structure to him before his death.This have been widely rejected by the party faithfuls, calling on the national leadership of PDP to reject the coming back of OGD who traded the party followers for the ruling party.
The Hon Sikirulai Ogundele faction have returned to the drawing board,with the Hon Ladi Adebutu to faction out how to return all waring factions in the party.The faction who have adopted OGD as their new leader are hopeful to carry on the Senator Buruji Kashamu’s legacy.
