US extradition: ‘Apprehensive’ Kashamu seeks unnecessary appeal

The Federal High Court on Thursday dismissed a fresh application by Senator Buruji Kashamu over his possible extradition to the US for drug-related charges.

Kashamu had previously gotten two orders in his favour restricting the DSS and Police from arresting and extraditing him.

Justice Okon Abang, declined the request, saying Kashamu did not need to file a suit as previous orders had been in his favour.

“In this issue of the alleged plan by the respondent to abduct the applicant, I am aware that the applicant has various court judgments in his favour.

“If he is apprehensive, and is so sure of himself and his facts, he is at liberty to execute the various judgments.

“The two judgments are still subsisting and therefore the applicant requires no court order against the respondents.

“If he is complaining that persons who were not parties in the previous judgments are threatening to take steps to extradite him to U.S by force, he can seek leave of the court to execute the judgements in his favour.

“He can do so in line with provisions of Section 133 of the Criminal Code and he does not need a fresh order or fresh suit to achieve that,’’ Justice Abang ruled.
