Kashamu Wants To Kill Me, Gbenga Daniel Cries To Police

The former governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel is claiming that a fellow PDP party stalwart, Senator Buruji Kashamu is trying to take his life.

He made this accusation in a letter he sent to the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris on Thursday.

In the letter titled; ‘Assassination Attempt on my Person; Main Suspect, Senator Buruji Kashamu’, the former governor explained in details how men in military uniform went into his house looking for him.

Part of the letter reads, “Five hefty men, two of them in Military fatigue, three others in Black clothes approached the gate honking that the gate be opened. The gateman peeped through the pedestrian gate asking for their identity and mission, they refused to wind down.

Gateman then opened the Pedestrian gate to further inquire innocently. They asked for his boss “OGD” and he told them I was not at home. The five men instantly alighted from the car and pushed the gateman forcefully into the compound and started beating him saying he was lying and that they had information that I was at home. They thereafter asked him how many Policemen were in the house and he told them five men.”

He further said the masked men locked up a police orderly attached to his house. “Meanwhile the Police that was locked in the toilet luckily had his gun kept in that toilet. He took his gun, went through the ceiling and landed in another main toilet that was not locked and started firing his gun. That was when they took to their heels and escaped. They were said to be carrying pistols or shotguns while one of them who carried a bigger gun stood watch at the gate as the operation lasted. Nothing was removed from the house. They reportedly came in a black Camry and the sixth person was said to be the driver who stayed put in the car on standby.”

In the letter, the PDP chieftain says that the major suspect in the botched assassination attempt was Senator Kashamu. He explains that “It is public knowledge that there is no love lost between Senator Kashamu and I.
In the last eight years that we disagreed politically, he has not stopped maligning my character in every way possible. On one occasion, he confessed publicly and wrote in National newspapers saying that he spent over N3b to destabilize and destroy my administration.”

Daniel says his letter is to “to alert the Police authorities about the evil intentions of Senator Buruji Kashamu towards my person and request for additional Security protection.”
