DSS, Police Making Plans to Abduct, Extradite Me to US – Kashamu

A Federal High Court, Abuja, has declined to hear a fresh application brought by Senator Buruji Kashamu urging the court to stop the Police and Department of State Security from extraditing him to the US to face drug related offences.
The court directed Kashamu, to execute the two previous court judgments he obtained stopping the Federal Government from extraditing him to the U.S.
Kashamu brought the fresh application, because according to him, he had information that the Police and DSS were making plans to abduct and extradite him to the the US
In his motion on notice filed by his counsel, Godswill Mrakpor, the Senator claimed that unless the court granted him the order, his liberty would be put in jeopardy by the security operatives.
But Justice Okon Abang, declined the request, saying that the serving Senator, representing Ogun West in the Senate did not need the order.
Abang held that if Kashamu was sure that Police and the DSS were taking steps to arrest and extradite him, he should execute the two earlier judgments earluer obtained against the Federal Government.
He said that it was not necessary for the court to issue a fresh order against the defendants in the matter since the same court had delivered two judgments in his favour on the subject matter.
The Judge said, “On this issue of the alleged plan by the respondent to abduct the applicant, I am aware that the applicant has various court judgments in his favour.
“If he is apprehensive, and is so sure of himself and his facts, he is at liberty to execute the various judgments.
“The two judgments are still subsisting and therefore the applicant requires no court order against the respondents.
“If he is complaining that persons who were not parties in the previous judgments are threatening to take steps to extradite him to U.S by force, he can seek leave of the court to execute the judgements in his favour.
“He can do so in line with provisions of Section 133 of the Criminal Code and he does not need a fresh order or fresh suit to achieve that.’’
On the petition against him by Adebutu that he, Kashamu was threatening his life, the Judge ordered that status quo be maintained pending the determination of the motion on notice filed by the Senator.
Abang said that his decision was based on the agreement reached by the parties to maintain status quo.
He, however, referred the case filed to the Chief Judge of the court, Justice Ibrahim Auta, for reassignment to another Judge after vacation.
