BurujiGate! Protesters Storm Court As Kashamu Refuses To Leave Home





The extradition proceedings of Ogun East senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu begins today at the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Some pro-Kashamu protesters have stormed the High court, calling for his freedom and have labelled the proceeding against him as politically motivated by some of his enemies.
The protesters who were carrying placards want Kashamu to be freed.
Some of the messages on the placards reads: “Leave Kashamu alone”, “We voted for him, he is our man”, “Kashamu is a great state man”, “Kashamu is not a drug baron”, “Ilegal detention, illegal arrest must stop”.
The embattled Senator-elect has refused to leave his residence while the Extradition case is on as we speak. Sources say Kashamu’s counsels are requesting for the warrant of arrest and valid extradition request from the NDLEA officials which they’re yet to produce.
Kashamu was indicted by a grand jury in Illinois in 1998 for conspiracy to import and distribute heroin. He has claimed it is a case of mistaken identity and that, in fact, his brother was the leader of the purported drug ring.
Since then, Kashamu has become an influential political leader in Nigeria, where he was elected as a senator under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The senator-elect barricaded himself in his bedroom as his house was surrounded by drug agents on Saturday. They reportedly arrived at the house at 4:30 a.m.
