NDLEA/Kashamu Standoff: NGO Calls For Due Process

Buruji KashamuA non-governmental organisation, One Child One Teacher Africa (OCOTA), has expressed concern about Saturday’s attempted arrest of Senator-elect Buruji Kashamu by operatives of the National Drug and Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Lagos.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by its Media Consultant, Mr Richards Jude, the organisation said that it detested the manner in which the agency approached the attempted arrest.

It called for due process and rule of law in the matter by the NDLEA, insisting that fundamental rights of the senator-elect must be respected.

“The rights of every Nigerian regardless of his or her status must be not be violated in the guise of enforcing provisions of the law”, the statement said.

NDLEA operatives visited the residence of the senator-elect Saturday to arrest him following a request for his extradition by U.S. authorities. (NAN)

  1. Due process is observed,hence,the house arrest. But,what still beats me is the man himself. If he actually knows that the whole thing is a mistaken identity,he should be bold enough to step forward to clear his name.

  2. I don’t know when political victimization will stop in Nigeria, United Kingdom’s government were in the right position to handover the senator elect to USA while he was in detention under there care instead he was release after all investigations, it means the senator elect is inocent, all what i know is that some political gladiators in Nigeria are no longer comfortable with the senator elect that is why they are doing all things possible to see they punish him.
