A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) not to take any further steps in their alleged renewed plot to extradite Senator Buruji Kashamu to the United States.

Justice Babatunde Quadri gave the order on Tuesday while ruling on an ex-parte application filed by Kasamu, which was argued by his lawyer, J. O. Odubela (SAN).

Justice Quadri particularly ordered parties to maintain status quo pending the determination of the substantive suit filed by Kashamu.

The judge also granted the applicant leave to serve processes in relation to the suit, including the originating summons on NDLEA outside the jurisdiction of the court at 4 Shaw Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.

Justice Quadri adjourned to September 24 for the hearing of the substantive suit.
