Kashamu alleges plot to abduct him

The senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Prince Buruji Kashamu, has raised the alarm over a plot to either abduct or assassinate him.

In a statement issued on Friday in Lagos, Kashamu alleged that the plot was being planned by some powerful politicians in connivance with some top officers of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

Kashamu alleged that the plot was to either have him abducted or attacked on the streets or at a social function.

Wondering why anyone would want to bypass legitimate authorities and resort to such crude tactics and self-help in a democratic Nigeria, Kashamu said, “I do not know what I have done to them that they want to behave as if Nigeria is a Banana Republic. If anyone thinks he has a case against me, he should approach the courts and allow the rule of law to prevail.”

The senator said the latest plan to have him abducted or assassinated could have been because of his activities in the nation’s political landscape.

According to him, “Politics should not be a do-or-die affair. I will always say and stand by the truth in the interest of the masses. I will always rise above primordial sentiments and selfish interest in all my dealings, in and out of politics,” Kashamu said.

The senator, who said he was out to ensure good life for the masses and good governance in the country, urged Nigerians to pray for him so that the machination of those plotting against him would end up in futility.
