Senator Buruji Kashamu has described the move to extradite him to the US for an ongoing drug trial as illegal adding that people will die before he will be taken to the United States of America.
Speaking over the weekend, the lawmaker stressed that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government would not oblige the request by the US Government for his extradition.
Senator Kashamu said, “There is no extradition that can be brought against me again. The only thing they can do is to watch and catch me on the road; take me to the airport or Cotonou or throw me inside a vessel and take me through the Atlantic Ocean. But I am not going to let that happen. I don’t go to the beach, and now, I will go and hire OPC, may be like 40. I will load them (in my vehicle), because the day we meet, one has to kill one. That is for sure! One has to kill one because I am not ready to go anywhere. Before that happens, maybe about three, four or five people will die.”
“But I do not believe that this government can entertain this kind of rubbish. I do believe that this government has integrity and they (officials) are credible; they believe in the rule of law, because if they want to do it, they could have done it.”
“Obasanjo has been pushing them, using one Sandra, a former ambassador of the United States; he’s the one pushing everybody, meeting all these judges, but what have I done?”
Similarly, the Ogun-born lawmaker has said that the allegations of drug trafficking against him, was a case of mistaken identity, saying the United States are after his late brother and not him.
