Kashamu drags 12 major security agencies to court over extradition plot

by Kolapo Olapoju

The fear of Judge Norgle is the beginning of Kashamu’s desperation.

Buruji Kashamu is trying his damnedest to avoid being shipped to face his demon- ‘Judge Norgle’ in the United States on alleged drug-related offences.

The chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party and senator-elect for Ogun East Senatorial District, has pulled a desperate move by dragging to court 12 major security agencies in Nigeria over an alleged plot to extradite him to face trial before… Judge Norgle.

Kashamu has instituted a fundamental rights enforcement action before a Federal High Court in Lagos 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

Respondents in the suit marked FHC/L/CS/505/15 are the Chairman of the NDLEA, 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 Federation.

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.

He alleged that the plot to extradite him was politically inspired by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to make certain that he’s not allowed to represent the people of Ogun East Senatorial District in the Senate.

According to Kashamu, the plan is to arrest him during his swearing in as a senator and to transport him to the US in a private plane to face trial before Judge Norgle.

Consequently, he implored 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.

Kashamu is also 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.”
