Senator Buruji Kashamu hs alleged that the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) is plotting to abduct him.

The Senator also said the plan was to attack him on the street or at any social function.

The NDLEA formally applied for the extradition of the Senator on June 2, 2015, but a Lagos court restrained the agency and other security agencies from arresting Senator Kashamu.

Speaking on the alleged plot by NDLEA, the Senator said  “I do not know what I have done to them that they want to do as if Nigeria is a Banana Republic. If anyone thinks he has a case against me, he should approach the courts and allow the rule of law to prevail.

“I urge the masses and Nigerians in general to help me beseech the Almighty Allah who has been my help and shield to continue to protect and guide me from all manners of evil machinations.

“They should not kill me for my family and the thousands of Nigerians who depend on me for their daily living.

“Politics should not be a do-or-die affair. I will always say and stand by the truth in the interest of the masses.

“I will always rise above primordial sentiments and selfish interest in all my dealings, in and out of politics.”

The agency, despite a court ruling, promised to still arrest and extradite Senator Buruji Kashamu to the US to face drug charges.
