Buruji Kashamu Offers $1000 To Every Protester Against His Arrest

Senator-elect from Ogun State, Prince Buruji Kashamu seems to have hit a panic button following the invasion of his Lekki, Lagos home this morning by armed men from the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
The NDLEA officials who stormed his house at about 4,30 am were acting on the request of the US Drug Enforcement Agency and the Department of Justice following the alleged dismissal of a case by Kashamu in the US against his extradition.
Now, Kashamu on his twitter page is offering Nigerians $1000 (One thousand US dollars) each to storm his house to protest what he termed illegality of the NDLEA action-and he has vowed not to move an inch and may even commit suicide if they attempt to take him by force.
Earlier Spokesman for Kashamu, Austin Oniyokor had stated that the onslaught is a confirmation of the alleged plot to illegally abduct him in spite of a pending suit against such an action.
According to him “As a matter of fact the court has ordered parties in the matter including the NDLEA to maintain status quo until judgement is delivered on Wednesday May 27, 2015.
We have confirmed that they do not have a warrant of arrest, just as the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) has said that it did not give any order to carry out such illegality.
We have confirmed that this illegality is being designed and executed by Chief Bode George whose wife is the Director-General of the NDLEA, all in a bid to score cheap political points.
In a swift reaction, the Attorney-General of the Federation has stated that the arrest of Kashamu is not extra judicial. According to him a formal request has been made by the American government seeking his extradition and same has been passed to the appropriate legal body. He adds that due process and all legal proceedings will be pursued with respect to his extradition.
Meanwhile speaking from the United Kingdom where he is currently on holiday, Chief Bode George has refuted allegations that he has a hand in Kashamu’s arrest. He said Kashamu should face the right authorities and leave him out of his troubles. He stated that he knows nothing about the Senator-elect’s current predicament.
