The Senate on Tuesday halted the planned extradition of Senator representing Ogun East, Buruji Kashamu to the United States of America.
This development was following the submission of the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions report.
The report said there were various cases pending against Senator Buruji Kashamu over drug allegation in various federal high courts in Nigeria.
The committee said it would be wrong for Kashamu to be extradited when the matter has not been exhausted in Nigerian courts.
The Senate finally granted the recommendation that cases already pending in various courts be exhausted before any action.
