NDLEA reaction to court order - press statement from Kashamu

Press statement from Buruji Kashamu's media adviser, Austin Oniyokor. Read below...
As has been widely reported on the social and traditional media, the judiciary has once again risen to the occasion in serving the cause of justice and showing that it is truly the last hope of the common man by ordering the operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency to immediately vacate Prince Buruji Kashamu's residence.
However, we are taken aback by a statement issued by the NDLEA today saying it will not obey yet another court judgment.


It is most ludicrous that NDLEA has chosen to further sink not just the agency but the Federal Government and indeed Nigeria into the abyss of lawlessness.
By its conduct, the agency has not just proven once again that it is a lawlessness, it has shown that it has no regards for the judiciary but  also holds it in utter contempt. 
We urge all well meaning Nigerians, civil society organisations and the international community to help prevail on the NDLEA to desist from its strings of illegalities and stop embarrassing the the country among the comity of nations.
If the NDLEA  claims to have got an extradition request, it should be taken to the court of law and the issues properly addressed, not this gestapo style that it has resorted to as if we are in a Banana republic. 
Signed
Austin Oniyokor
Media Adviser to Prince Buruji Kashamu
