Court upholds judgment against extradition of alleged drug baron Buruji Kashamu

The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has restated the validity of the judgment which restrained the commencement of any extradition process against Senator Buruji Kashamu.

Justice Ibrahim Buba, in a judgment delivered today (Tuesday) on a contempt application filed by Senator Kashamu against the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Ahmadu Giade, held that the order made by another judge of the court, Justice Okon Abang “is still subsisting and must be complied with until it is set aside by a superior court.”

Justice Buba dismissed a preliminary objection filed by the NDLEA and then warned the AGF and the NDLEA Chairman to be of good conduct and obey the subsisting order of the court.

Counsel on both sides spoke to our judiciary correspondent, Shola Soyele about the import of this judgment on the extradition suit pending against Senator Kashamu before Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Federal high court in Abuja.
