A US Appeal Court has upheld a ruling against a Nigerian Senator Buruji Kashamu, who faces drug charges related to the HIT tv show “orange is the new black.”
Senator kashamu’s Chicago prosecutors accused him of heading a heroin trafficking ring in the 1990s.
In a swift reaction, counsel to Senator Buruji Kashamu, Ajibola Oluyede argues that the ruling of the US court of appeal is another chapter in the misinformation and deliberate falsification of facts.
According to him, the grave implication of allowing US 17th circuit’s pronouncement concerning the capacity of the US government to carry out police operations in foreign territory is a breach of international law.
He reiterated that Nigerian courts have unequivocally declared that the action is illegal.
