A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, in Ogun State, believes that Prince Buruji Kashamu has done nothing wrong to warrant being shipped to the United States of America to face drug-related offences.
Chief Toyin Umar says that the Senator-elect has no sin to warrant such a treatment, adding that the move was an attempt to witch-hunt the financier of the PDP in the South West.
In a statement personally signed by Umar, he said that Kashamu had got a judgment from the United Kingdom over the drugs case which exonerated him long time ago.
Umar stated that the people ochestrating the extradition plot were doing so in order to run him down for political reasons. “The attempt has political undertone. Buruji Kashamu has no case with the USA, its just that some people are trying to run him down.
“If truly the Senator-Elect has a case to answer in the United States of America, the authorities know the right thing to do, and not that, some people would be flying a kite for his extradition.
“I urge the brains behind the move to stop witch-hunting him. This same case was mentioned in the UK some years back, it ended up in favour of the senator-elect.”
