NDLEA operatives who stormed the Lekki home of Prince Buruji Kashamu, will wait till Monday, to know whether they could carry away their prey.

Latest report say the senator-elect from Ogun state was able to delay his arrest because the NDLEA operatives did not come with an elementary paper: a warrant of arrest. The operatives have now decided to keep Kashamu indoors till Monday when they would seek a court order to effect the arrest.

Kashamu’s lawyers will also be going to court to challenge the move, according to Buruji’s media aide, Austin Oniyokor. Oniyokor in a statement said that the latest onslaught is a confirmation of the alleged plot to illegally abduct him in spite of the pending suit against this illegality.

During an exclusive interview with SaharaTV, Austin Oyinokor also explained that Mr. Kashamu said he wanted to kill himself only to prevent getting arrested. That the suicide threats were:

 “just to show that he is a law-abiding citizen, a responsible man who knows that  he has a lot of followers and a lot of people that depended on him. I know that he will not take such an action. He just said it probably to show that he was ready to give anything to ward off any form of illegality.”
Mr. Oyinokor added by saying that, “we hope that all Nigerians and even the international community will prevail these people to...the part of illegality, the part of the rule of law, follow due process. This man is not running to anywhere, he has said it time and again; he is not in hiding; if he was running, they won’t meet him at home. Yesterday he was at work, and he went home like any other person.

Our question is why would the NDLEA come for him [Kashamu] with hooded men and without a warrant of arrest, we felt that there must be a political undertone, we felt that maybe the disagreement we had in the PDP before the last general elections may have necessitated this kind of extrajudicial action because there isn’t any court order and there isn’t a warrant of arrest.”

Oyinikor also said that Kashamu’s spirit is very positive and welcoming the public to hear his side of the story.
“He actually said that I should invite the press, the whole world to come and know what is happening here, that they have come to illegally abduct him; we actually called them [Press],  and that they should come report this illegality to the whole world.

He is in high spirit; all he is asking for is for the due process of the law to be followed; he is not entertaining any fear at all.”
