Release Kashamu To The US Over Drug Related Crimes, Rights Group Tells FG

A popular civil rights organisation, Anti-Corruption Network (ACN), has issued a one-week ultimatum to the Federal Government within which it expects it to extradite the South West leader of the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Buruji Kashamu, to the United States America where he is allegedly wanted for drug-related offences.

The ACN also warned that should the government fail to comply with its demand, it would seek redress in court.

The organisation’s Director (Outreach Services), Mr. Timi Frank, said in a statement on Monday in Abuja that it had written a petition to the Attorney-General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice, Mr. Mohammed Bello Adoke (SAN), to that effect.

He said that the demand became necessary because “his (Kashamu) appeal to quash the criminal case against him has failed for the second time in an America court.”

But Kashamu has always insisted that since he has been cleared by the courts in Nigeria, he has no case to answer in the US.

Frank said a man that international warrant being placed on him should not be allowed to parade himself in Nigeria as a political leader.

He said, “We have written a petition to the AGF on the need to release Mr. Buruji Kashamu to the security agencies in America, who are looking for him. A man with international warrant on him should not be allowed to parade himself in Nigeria as a political leader.

“Buruji Kashamu, who is facing criminal charges and trial in an America court in a case with suit No. 94CR17215, escaped to Nigeria and has since refused to go back.

“His appeal to quash his criminal case failed for the second time in an America court. We, therefore, by this notice ask that if the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation refuses to act accordingly within the next seven days, we will go to court to seek redress.

“We are a responsible society and the world is a global village. Criminals should not be granted succour anywhere in the world. As an organisation, we shall always defend the laws of our land and protect our society from intercontinental criminals and crooks. No amount of blackmail, intimidation, harassment or name-calling will detract our attention from championing the course of justice as fair play in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“We have no other country but Nigeria; so, we must do all within our powers to protect the basic sanctity of truth. We will continue to advocate for a just and egalitarian society. A word is enough for the wise!”
