Senator-elect Buruji Kashamu, who is involved in the controversy over extradition to the US in connection with drug-related offences, is facing more trouble.
This time the politician has been accused of forging documents for a landed property worth billions of Naira in Ajah area, Lagos state, PM News reports.
Family of late Chief Ambali Bakare acc
used the politician of illegal purchase.
Shafiudeen Bakare, representing the family, informed Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Abeokuta that they possessed all the necessary documents to drag Kashamu to court.
“We are here to speak to the world on the fraudulent purchase of our land at Ajah by Buruji Kashamu under the business name of Bukas Kasmal International Ltd. We have been deprived of this land, and we have come to raise alarm.
“When some of those who purchased the land took him to court, the court ruled that we, the original owners should be in court and not a third party. So, we have been making arrangements to revisit the case by heading for the courts to get justice.
“Some of those whose section of the land was encroached took the matter up, but, unfortunately at the court, it was ruled that the plaintiffs could not take the defendant to court, hence, three years after, we are set to revisit the matter.”
