KASHAMU IS UNDER HOUSE ARREST- NDLEA

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has said that its operatives’ visit to Buruji Kashamu’s home Saturday was to confine him to his residence pending his appearance in court on Monday to perfect extradition proceedings to the United States.
A statement issued by the anti-narcotics agency on Saturday evening said the operation is in line with the legal process of extradition.
“The Agency has commenced extradition procedures against Senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu, in line with the laws of country,” said Ahmadu Giade, NDLEA’s Chairman.
“He has been in contact with his attorneys and will appear in court on Monday,” said Mr. Giade.
A team of NDLEA narcotic operatives stormed Mr. Kashamu’s Lagos home at about 5 a.m. on Saturday to keep an eye on the Ogun East District Senator-elect.
Mr. Kashamu had blamed some members of his political party, including Bode George, a party chieftain, and his wife, of being behind the raid by NDLEA.
A U.S federal grand jury, in 1998, charged Mr. Kashamu and 14 others for their alleged involvement in an international conspiracy to smuggle heroin into the U.S.
