The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Saturday announced the suspension of a senator, Buruji Kashamu, from the party.
Mr. Kashamu represents Ogun East Senatorial District in the upper chamber.
The National Caretaker Committee of the PDP, tweeted a few hours ago from the party’s official Twitter account (@OfficialPDPNig) that the senator would stay suspended for one month.
