The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has dismissed reports of a court order directing it to leave the home of Ogun Senator-elect Buruji Kashamu.

The NDLEA have laid siege to Kashamu’s house since Saturday, May 23, 2015.

Speaking through its Spokesman, Mitchell Ofoyeju, the NDLEA said that reports of the court order were “diversionary” and “inconsequential”m adding that the agency had not received the vacation order from the court.

Ofoyeju said: “The NDLEA does not believe that any court will issue an order preventing a government agency from performing its statutory responsibilities in a lawful manner.

“The agency has therefore refused to be distracted and will continue to maintain presence at the residence. It is advisable that Kashamu respects the law by submitting himself to the due process of the law.

“The NDLEA wishes to reiterate that his rights like that of other citizens shall be respected and the due process of law followed in this case.

“The agency is prepared to further increase her public rating and goodwill in the areas of suspect handling, respect for human rights and the rule of law. We are prepared to explore all legal means in handling this case to a logical conclusion.”
