A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Toyin Umar has risen to the defence of Ogun State Senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu saying that the latter doesn’t have any case to answer in the United States of America.

Umar said further that the extradition threat against Kashamu was a ploy to witch-hunt the financier of the PDP in the South West.

Kashamu is reportedly wanted by the US government for his alleged participation in a drug ring.

”Buruji Kashamu has no case with the USA, it’s just that some people are trying to run him down,” Umar said.

“If truly the Senator-Elect has a case to answer in the United States of America, the authorities know the right thing to do, and not that, some people would be flying a kite for his extradition,” he added.

“I urge the brains behind the move to stop witch-hunting him. This same case was mentioned in the UK some years back, it ended up in favour of the senator-elect”, the PDP chieftain said.

Kashamu was allegedly indicted on drug charges in Chicago in 1998, a claim which he vehemently denies.

The Senator-elect has instituted a case with a Federal High Court in Lagos in order to stop any moves to extradite him.
