We Will Not Leave Kashamu’s House Despite Court Order- NDLEA

The National
Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA has said that they would not leave the house of Mr
Kashamu a senator-elect and a prominent member of PDP despite a court order
asking them to leave. According to NDLEA, they only got to hear about the court
order in the news today and it might not be true. The agency spokesperson in a
press statement also said it is hard to believe that a court of law will
prevent a government agency from performing its responsibilities.
But according
to earlier reports, a Federal High court today had issued a ruling ordering
NDLEA operatives who had laid a siege on Mr. Kashamu’s home in Lagos since Saturday
to vacate.

“The NDLEA does not believe that any court will issue an
order preventing a government agency from performing its statutory
responsibilities in a lawful manner. The agency has therefore refused to be distracted and will
continue to maintain presence at the residence. It is advisable that Kashamu
respects the law by submitting himself to the due process of the law.
“The NDLEA wishes to reiterate that his rights like that of
other citizens shall be respected and the due process of law followed in this
case. The agency is prepared to further increase her public
rating and goodwill in the areas of suspect handling, respect for human rights
and the rule of law. We are prepared to explore all legal means in handling
this case to a logical conclusion,” Mitchell Ofoyeju, the agency’s spokesperson said in a statement.
