A Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday, ordered Senator Buruji Kashamu to pay N50,000 each to the Director-General, State Security Service (DSS) and the National Drug law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA)
Kashamu is seeking to stop his extradition to the United States, to face drug related charges.
Kashamu is urging the court to restrain the respondents, including the Inspector General of Police, Commissioner of Police, Lagos Police Command, Director General, State Security Service (DSS), National Drug law Enforcement Agency NDLEA, and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), from arresting or detaining him, in any manner whatsoever, or interfering with his right to personal liberty and freedom of movement.
In a ruling, Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke, gave the order, following the absence of the Kashamu’s lawyer, Mrs Ifeoma Esom. Justice Aneke asked Mr O.Bajela who appeared and J.N. Sunday who appeared for the DSS and NDLEA if they had seen a letter from the plaintiff counsel, seeking adjournment over another case she had at the Court of Appeal.
