Ogun-East Senator in the National Assembly, Buruji Kashamu, has withdrawn a N20.1 billion libel suit he instituted against former President Olusegun Obasanjo before a Federal Capital Territory court in Abuja.
It was learnt that the presiding judge, Justice Valentine Ashi, struck out the suit on May 26, 2015, following the notice of discontinuance of the suit filed by the plaintiff.
Kashamu, a Peoples Democratic Party chief in Ogun State, was said to have anchored his decision to withdraw the suit on “an ongoing settlement talks” between him and Obasanjo.
But the lawyers who are representing the former president in the suit said they were not aware of such talks.
