No American court has ordered my extradition, says Kashamu

The senator representing Ogun East in the National Assembly, Senator Buruji Kashamu, yesterday dismissed reports that an America court had ordered his extradition to the United States.

Kashamu, in a statement in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, yesterday described the reports as “totally unfounded, vexatious and malicious” and being spread by “mischievous elements,” insisting that “there is no extradition proceedings against me anywhere in the world.”

He added: “I asked my lawyers in the US to file the suit when I got wind of an evil plot to abduct me in 2015, which later happened between May 23 and 28, 2015, until there was a judicial intervention, which ordered the US officials and their local collaborators out of my Lagos residence.


“It should be noted that there is no extradition proceedings against me anywhere in the world. The last one they purportedly brought after the siege to my residence was dismissed by the Federal High Court, Abuja on July 1, 2015.

Buruji said he had faced two extradition proceedings in the United Kingdom at the instance of the US and the British court found out that it was a case of mistaken identity after four rigorous years of trial.

He insisted that no fresh extradition proceedings could be brought against him, saying any other purported extradition proceedings or abduction is illegal.
