The Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District, Senator Buruji Kashamu, has described the alarm raised by former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, that he sponsored an alleged assassination attempt on his life as a “hoax, spurious allegation without any basis in fact and evidence whatsoever”.
A statement issued by Kashamu’s Media Adviser, Austin Oniyokor, said, “It is certain that OGD is hallucinating. He is the accuser, the investigator, prosecutor and judge in his own case. Pray, why would Senator Kashamu go after a man who is at the twilight of his political career? By the grace of God, the Distinguished Senator Buruji Kashamu is PDP’s highest political office holder in Ogun State despite the OGD’s efforts to make him lose the election. So, why would he want to attack a former Governor who has lost political relevance six years after leaving office? Is OGD the only former Governor in Ogun State?
“All the good people of Ogun State know who is violent between Senator Kashamu and OGD. Whereas all Nigerians know that Ogun State was under the siege of violence and politically-motivated killings during OGD’s reign as governor of Ogun State, Senator Kashamu fights his political battles in the court of law and public opinion using his God-given resources. He does not have any record of violence since he joined partisan politics. OGD cannot boast of such Spartan record. The intelligence and security agencies can attest to this fact.
“Clearly, OGD is hallucinating and afraid of his shadows. Otherwise, what would have been expected of sane mind was to report the incident to the Police and allow them to do their job of investigating the incident. But, in this case, because he is desperate to score cheap political point and seek relevance for his dimming political career, he has to raise the false alarm and pin it on someone who does not even care if he exists. In doing this, he has cheapishly assumed the role of the accuser, investigator and prosecutor or judge in his own case. What a childish way to play cheap politics! ”
