Gbenga Daniel petitions IGP, says Kashamu want to kill him


The immediate past governor of Ogun State,
Otunba Gbenga Daniel, yesterday accused the
Senator representing Ogun East, Chief Buruji
Kashamu, of sending hired killers after him.
Daniel, in a petition to the Police claimed that
“five hefty men, two of them in military fatigue”
on Thursday invaded his Abuja residence with a
view to terminating his life.
He said they were acting on behalf of Kashamu,
who, according to the former governor, has “on
several other occasions boasted in the company
of his friends that he will not rest until he sees
my end.”
He added: “This renewed offensive was as a
result of the recent Supreme Court ruling placing
his own faction at a disadvantage and ending the
reign of his control over the State Executive
Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party in
Ogun State, which were all secured through
various controversial court orders.
He asked the police for additional security
protection and to put Kashamu “under security
watch list and strict surveillance.”
The Senator, reacting to the accusation last
night said it was a hoax.
“It is certain that OGD is hallucinating,”
Kashamu’s Media Adviser, Austin Oniyokor said
in a statement.
“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?”
Daniel and Kashamu belong to rival factions of
the PDP in Ogun State.
Their disagreement dates to Daniel’s tenure as
governor of the state.
