Senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu has failed to appear in court from his house where he is being closely monitored by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
A statement issued by NDLEA yesterday signed by Head Public Affairs Ofoyeju Mitchell said the Agency is working hard to ensure that he submits himself to the due process of the law. “His house remained cordoned by anti-narcotic officers pending his appearance in court.
“ The extradition move by the NDLEA for Kashamu to answer drug trafficking charges is legal. The Agency has not violated his rights and will continue to work within the confines of the law. “He has been assured that due process of the law shall be adhered to at every stage.
“NDLEA is the appropriate government Agency to implement his extradition request and will diligently pursue the processes to a logical conclusion. It is expected that Kashamu will willingly submit himself to the laws of the country under which he seeks to serve as a senator,” the statement said.
