AGF, NDLEA urge court to dismiss Kashamuâ€™s suit
The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar
Malami (SAN) and the National Drug Drug Law
Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on Wednesday urged
the Federal High Court in Lagos to dismiss a
fundamental rights suit filed by Senator Buruji
Justice Ibrahim Buba, who had refused to
disqualify himself from the case after being
accused of likely bias by NDLEA, has adjourned to
November 18 for judgment.
Kashamu is praying the court to restrain the
Federal Government from seizing his properties for
alleged drug trafficking.
He sought an order of perpetual injunction
restraining NDLEA and the AGF from taking
possession of his belongings.
Arguing the application on Wednesday, the
senatorâ€™s lawyer, Ajibola Oluyede, said Kashamu
had been exonerated from charges of heroine
importation into the United States.
