The Anti-Corruption Network has written Mr. Mohammed Adoke, the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, on the need to release Mr. Buruji Kashamu to the security agencies in America looking for him.

“A man with international warrant on him should not be allowed to parade himself in Nigeria as a political leader,” the group’s Director (Outreach Services), Mr. Timi Frank, said in a statement issued today in Abuja.

According to the statement, “Buruji Kashamu who is facing criminal charges and trial in an America court in a case with suit No. 94CR17215, escaped to Nigeria and has since refuse to go back.

“His appeal to quash his criminal case failed for the second time in an America Court. We therefore by this notice, ask that if the office of the Attorney General of the Federation refuses to act accordingly within the next seven (7) days, we will go to court to seek redress.

“We are a responsible society and the world is a global village. Criminals should not be granted succor anywhere in the world.

“As an organisation, we shall always defend the laws of our land and protect our society from intercontinental criminals and crooks. No amount of blackmail, intimidation, harassment or name calling will detract our attention from championing the course of justice as fair play in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We have no other country but Nigeria, so we must do all within our powers to protect the basic sanctity of truth. We will continue to advocate for a just and egalitarian society. A word is enough for the wise!”
