Nigerian Senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu's drug case in Illinois, has been linked to the basis for American TV hit series, Orange Is The New Black.

In a report by Associated Press on Thursday, April 16, 2015, Buruji's alleged indictment by a grand jury in the Northern District of Illinois for conspiracy to import and distribute heroin in the United States in the United States for allegedly smuggling heroin, was the basis for the TV hit, Orange Is The New Black.

The report further went to reveal that a dozen people were long ago tried and jailed in the case, including American Piper Kerman, whose memoir about her jail time became the Netflix hit, Orange Is The New Black.

Though Kerman's book never identified Buruji by name, she mentioned a West African drug kingpin whom she calls "Alhaji" — meaning one who has completed the hajj or pilgrimage to Mecca.
