We will not vacate Kashamu’s residence – NDLEA

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency NDLEA says it will not
vacate the premises of embattled Senator elect, Buruji Kashamu who is
wanted for alleged drug related offences in the USA.

NDLEA said this in reaction to an order from a Federal High Court in
Lagos today directing officials of the agency to vacate the premises
of Kashamu. In a statement signed by its spokesperson, Mitchell Ofoyeju,
NDLEA said it has not received the reported court injunction and that
the siege is within the law.

“The NDLEA does not believe that any
court will issue an order preventing a government agency from performing
its statutory responsibilities in a lawful manner. The agency has
therefore refused to be distracted and will continue to maintain
presence at the residence. It is advisable that Kashamu respects the law
by submitting himself to the due process of the law. The NDLEA wishes
to reiterate that his rights like that of other citizens shall be
respected and the due process of law followed in this case. The agency
is prepared to further increase her public rating and goodwill in the
areas of suspect handling, respect for human rights and the rule of law.
We are prepared to explore all legal means in handling this case to a
logical conclusion. According to official record, 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 further indicted by the Grand
Jury in the Northern District of Illinois, United States on heroin
trafficking charges” the statement read
