A non-governmental organisation, One Child One Teacher Africa (OCOTA), has expressed concern about Saturday’s attempted arrest of Senator-elect Buruji Kashamu by operatives of the National Drug and Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Lagos.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by its Media Consultant, Mr Richards Jude, the organisation said that it detested the manner in which the agency approached the attempted arrest.
It called for due process and rule of law in the matter by the NDLEA, insisting that fundamental rights of the senator-elect must be respected.
“The rights of every Nigerian regardless of his or her status must be not be violated in the guise of enforcing provisions of the law,” the statement said.
NAN recalls that NDLEA operatives visited the residence of the senator-elect Saturday to arrest him following a request for his extradition by U.S. authorities.
