Forceful Abduction To US, Kashamu Sues NDLEA, EFCC, IG, Others

You have been following his story on this blog and how he
has claimed that General Obasanjo who he once insulted saying he will drag him
to court without his cap, is planning to abduct him to the US with the help of
some law enforcement agencies to go and face his alleged drug case in the
United States. Kashamu has however filed a fresh suit where he sued the NDLEA,
EFCC, the Police IG asking that he should be left alone and no one should violate
his right to liberty. In all Obasanjo has been on his neck and doing everything
in his might to make sure the senator-elect faces charges against him in the US.

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party and
senator-elect for Ogun East Senatorial District, Mr. Buruji Kashamu, has
dragged the Chairman, National Drug Laws Enforcement Agency and 11 others to
court over an alleged plot to extradite him to the United States of America to
face trial on alleged drug-related offences.
Kashamu, who instituted a fundamental rights enforcement
action before a Federal High Court in Lagos, is seeking a declaration that the
move to abduct and forcibly transport him to the United States of America
amounted to a violation of his right to liberty, freedom of association and
freedom of movement as protected by sections 35, 40 and 41 of the Constitution
He alleged that the plot was a further move in the political
designs of former President Olusegun Obasanjo to ensure that he (Kashamu) was
denied the opportunity of enjoying the mandate freely given to him to represent
the people of Ogun East Senatorial District in the Senate.
Kashamu alleged that he had uncovered plans by Obasanjo to
mastermind his arrest during his swearing in as a senator and to transport him
to the US in a private plane to face trial before Judge Norgle.
Kashamu urged the court to declare as unlawful the alleged
collusion between the 12 respondents and his political opponents, led by
Obasanjo, to abduct and forcibly transport him to the US.
Apart from the NDLEA chairman, also joined as respondents in
the suit marked FHC/L/CS/505/15 are the Inspector General of Police; Chairman,
Economic and Financial Crimes Commission; Director General, Department of State
Service; the Interpol National Central Bureau; and the Attorney General of the
Others are the Clerk of the National Assembly; the National
Security Adviser to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria;
Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission; Nigeria
Customs Services; the Nigeria Immigration Service; and the Nigeria Security and
Civil Defence Corps.
The senator-elect is seeking an order of the court directing
the police IG to “provide a security detail of at least six armed police
officers to protect the applicant at all times of the day and to prevent (him
from) any attack or abduction.”
Kashamu, in a 92-paragraph affidavit deposed to by himself,
explained that though he was incarcerated in Brixton Prisons in London between
1998 and January 10, 2013, he was however later discharged after Judge Tim
Workman held that “the allegations of the US authorities against me with
regards to importation of narcotics to the US was a case of mistaken identity.”
Justice Okon Abang has adjourned till May 8, 2015 to take
Kashamu’s fundamental rights enforcement application and the respondents’
preliminary objections.
