By Wahab Akanji, Abuja
The spate of troubles plaguing a senator from Ogun State, Senator Kashamu Buruji has continued unabated as a lawyer, Mr Babatunde Olokun, has slammed a N10 million suit on him.
In the suit, Olokun is alleging that the Ijebu Igbo lawmaker unlawfully arrested him, continuously threatened his life, as well as infringed on his fundamental human rights.
Olokun who filed the application at the Federal High Court in Abuja, alleged that the senator was making murderous threats to his life through phone calls.
He asked the court to declare the acts unconstitutional and a violation of his right to life.
The lawyer also prayed the court to stop the politician from using the police or any other law enforcement agent to harass, intimidate or molest him as well as or interfering with his personal liberty.
When the matter was called on Wednesday, Counsel to Olokun, Mr Stanley Iji, prayed court for a short adjournment, saying that the respondents had yet to be served the processes.
The Judge, Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, noted that this was the second time the applicant had failed to serve the processes on the respondents.
The respondents are Kashamu. Onamusi Onadeko and the Inspector-General of Police.
Justice Dimgba warned that the case would be struck out on the next adjourned date if Olokun failed to serve the processes on Kashamu and the others.
The judge adjourned the matter till Feb. 17 for hearing.
