Senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu, who has been placed under house arrest over a related crime, failed to appear in court on Monday
Kashamu is being closely monitored by operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in his Lekki, Lagos, home.
The Head, Public Affairs of NDLEA, Mr. Ofoyeju Mitchell, said, the agency is working hard to ensure that the Peoples Democratic Party chieftain submits himself to the due process of the law.
According to Mitchell, the extradition move initiated by the NDLEA for Kashamu to answer drug trafficking charges in the United States, is legal.
“The agency has not violated his rights and will continue to work within the confines of the law. He has been assured that due process of the law shall be adhered to at every stage.
“NDLEA is the appropriate government agency to implement his extradition request and will diligently pursue the processes to a logical conclusion. It is expected that Kashamu will willingly submit himself to the laws of the country under which he seeks to serve as a senator,” the NDLEA spokesman said.
