Press statement from NDLEA on Buruji Kashamu's house arrest

Read the press statement below...
Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on May 23rd, 2015 placed Senator-elect Buruji Kashamu from Ogun State under house arrest. This is sequel to a formal request for extradition received from the Embassy of the United States of America pending his arraignment before the Federal High Court on Monday, May 25th.
Kashamu has been a target of both the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for over 20 years and was indicted in the Northern District of Illinois, United States on charges brought against him by ICE.
Kashamu, who U.S. court documents allege was known in his days as the leader of a prolific heroin trafficking ring based in Chicago, Illinois as “God,” “Daddy,” and “Kasmal,” is wanted to stand trial on charges of conspiracy and importation of controlled substances, namely heroin, into the United States dating back to 1994. Kashamu, who holds dual Nigerian/Beninese citizenship, has taken multiple preemptive actions to thwart U.S. extradition efforts such as making fanciful claims that his is a case of mistaken identity, and that his deceased brother is responsible for the crimes he is being sought after in the United States.
Kashamu has filed injunctions in federal court both in the Northern District of Illinois, United States and in Nigeria to prevent his arrest and prosecution. At the time of his arrest, NDLEA officers allowed Kashamu’s legal attorneys – Daniel Onamusi and Barrister Oloyede – and close family members including his wife and adult daughters to speak with him and attest to his well-being.
The NDLEA has assured Kashamu that he will be afforded all the protections of the law and will be given his day in court. Assertions that he will be bundled up under cover of darkness and whisked out of the country are untrue and should not be given any credence. We expect Kashamu as a senator-elect to demonstrate confidence in the Nigerian judicial system and not insinuate otherwise. Ofoyeju Mitchell Head, Public Affairs

    Why now that he has been elected Senator? This is bad belle at its height. When he was with Baba, nothing. Now that he won election under Jona's party, he is now under house arrest for possible extradition to the United states. Why should Ndlea play to the gallery? Why this time that it is few days to his inauguration to the Senate Chambers? If he is found guilty by a court then the law should take its cause because drug dealing is bad. But my problem is why wait till Baba started accusing him because they fell out before taking action?

    Obj's fury knows no bound. I remembered what happened in Imo state in 2007, when he refused a certain senator that was contesting for Imo Gov to be elected. Just bcos the man offended him by thwarting his third term bid presidential reelection. He saw it as a betrayal and dealt with the senator. Obj is so so vindictive. Kashimu should ve known better.
    When Obj is out for you, he doesn't look backward. He fights to finish.

    I for one know obasanjo is going to die a slow and painful death, for all the pains he has single handedly caused Nigerians. But wat can I say it's typical of yuroba ppl, back stabbers and betrayers even to their own families. If you are keeping a yuroba person as friends better have a 8D eyes..and also evidence of dirty deeds hook them at the jugular in case dey decide to perfect their back stabbing rituals on you..mother fuckers
