A Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday restrained the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) and its ex-Chairman, Ahmadu Giade, from arresting or detaining Senator Buruji Kashamu. The order granted by Justice Gabriel Kolawole after listening to Kashamu’s lawyer, Ajibola Oluyede, moved an ex-parte filed in the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/479/2015.
Justice Kolawole said the order will subsist until February 10 when he will give a considered ruling on the matter. Kashamu, former Director of Mobilisation, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is now representing Ogun East Senatorial District at the Senate. Giade, who was a former NDLEA Chairman, is now Special Adviser to the AGF on narcotics.
