Senator Buruji Kashamu has withdrawn a N20 billion
libel suit he filed against former President, Olusegun
Obasanjo.
The case was instituted at an Abuja High Court and
heard by Justice Valentine Ashi.
Justice Ashi is said to have struck out the suit on May
26, 2015, after Kashamu informed the court of his
intention to terminate the matter.
The Senator, who represents the Ogun East Senatorial
District, is said to have claimed that he withdrew the
suit due to “ongoing settlement talks” between him and
Obasanjo.
Obasanjo’s lawyers however stated, according to
Punch, that they were not aware of any such talks.
Kashamu filed the suit against Obasanjo after the
former President described him as a drug baron.
The Senator is currently facing extradition to the US to
face drug charges which were levelled against him in
1998.
