The Chieftain of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, BurujiKashamu, is facing a drug smuggling case in the United States and effort to get it quash through the use of Presidential power and force including document forgery as well as political pressure failed.

Report gathered on Sahara Reporters news page indicates that Mr.Kashamu and 14 others were, 1998, charged by a federal grand jury for their alleged involvement in an international conspiracy to smuggle heroin into the US.But the politician, a major campaigner for President Goodluck Jonathan in the South West, allegedly fled to the U.K. where repeated efforts by the U.S. to extradite him failed, before he returned to Nigeria.
