An agreement has been reached on Saturday between the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and the authorities of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency with the Senate to halt the alleged abduction of the senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District, Buruji Kashamu, to the United States.
Buruji Kasahmu had last week alleged that the anti-drug agency, NDLEA, was conniving with the authorities of the United States government to abduct him from Nigeria employing unlawful means.
In a petition to the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions by Kashamu’s lawyer, Ajibola Oluyede, the Ogun East Senatorial District representative claimed that the NDLEA operatives had perfected strategies to forcefully take him to the US to be prosecuted for drug related charges.
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions, Senator Samuel Anyanwu, speaking to journalists in Abuja said the NDLEA and the Office of the Attorney-General had resolved to halt further action on the matter pending the determination of the suit on the matter at the court.
“The Senate, AGF, NDLEA have unanimously agreed to stop further harassment, intimidation, abduction and extradition of Kashamu until the conclusion of the matter at the law court.
“We had also agreed that the rules of law and due process must be followed in the case.”
