The back and forth game between the NDLEA and Senator-elect for Ogun East, Mr. Buruji Kashamu is still on as a Federal High Court in Lagos has asked the agency to suspend all actions on the move to extradite Kashamu to the United States to face trial on alleged drug trafficking offences.
On Thursday, Justice Ibrahim Buba, adjourned hearing in all pending applications on the subject matter till June 19, and said that status quo must be maintained till all the applications were decided one way or the other.
Pending before Buba is the committal suit filed by Kashamu against the Attorney General of the Federation and the Chairman of the NDLEA, citing them for contempt of court.
In response, the NDLEA is challenging the jurisdiction of the court to entertain the matter.
The anti-narcotics agency is also seeking the reversal of the court order of May 26 which directed it to withdraw its operatives that had laid siege to Kashamu’s house.
