NDLEA officials surround Kashamu’s residence in Lagos

kashamuThe National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) surrounded the residence of the Senate-elect, Buruji Kashamu.
Their presence is in connection with plans to extradite the politican to the United States of America to answer drug related accusations proffered against him.



It was recalled that Kashamu had dragged the inspector-general of police and 11 others before a Federal High court sitting in Lagos, asking it to enforce his fundamental human right to freedom of movement.



The politician is specifically urging the court for an order restraining the defendants and their agents from arresting, detaining, or otherwise effecting his abduction upon spurious allegations.
He is also seeking an order directing the clerk of the National Assembly to accord him every facility and privilege due to him as a senator-elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Kashamu further wants a declaration that arrangements being made by the defendants in collusion with United States of America security operatives in West Africa and his political opponents led by General Olusegun Obasanjo to abduct him, and forcibly transport him to USA on the basis of allegations which had been the subject of investigation by Interpol and litigation in a competent court in the United Kingdom concerning him from which he had been exonerated are illegal, unlawful, ultra vires and constitute breach of his fundamental Rights to freedom of movement as enshrined in section 41 of constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999.

However, the court is yet to grant his request before the latest development.
