Kashamu asks court to stop FG’s move to abduct him


The Senator representing Ogun West in the Senate, Buruji Kashamu, yesterday asked the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to stop the Federal Government from forcefully abducting and transporting him to the United States of America to face drug related criminal charges.

Joined in the suit are the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.

Kashamu, through his counsel, Charles Ndukwe, told Justice Gabriel Kolawale that since July when the court put on hold any plan to abduct him, the defendants have been making clandestine moves to get him to the US at all cost to face trial on hard drug offences.

The counsel informed the court that unless an injunctive order was made against the defendant, the fundamental rights of his client would be jeopadised.

Justice Kolawale, however, queried the counsel on the allegation on the grounds that no evidence of forceful abduction had been placed before the court.
