Since its previous effort to package the Senator-elect for Ogun East, Buruji Kashamu for extradition was thwarted by the courts; the NDLEA says it has formally served him a notice by the United States government, demanding his extradition for drug-trafficking offences.
NDLEA Head of Public Affairs, Mr Mitchell Ofoyeju, said in a statement on Tuesday, that the application was secured by the Chief Judge, Federal High Court, Abuja in suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/479/2015.
The statement added that the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) had also sought the extradition of Kashamu to answer alleged drug trafficking charges.
“This is in line with the Extradition Act CAP, E25 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004 (as modified by Extradition Act Modification Order, 2014).
“The notice of the suit was officially served on Kashamu by the NDLEA on 1st of June 2015,” it said.
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives had commended NDLEA for the bold step taken in the extradition case involving Kashamu.
The letter of commendation was signed by the Chairman, House Committee on Drugs, Narcotics and Financial Crimes, Honourable Jagaba Adams Jagaba.
