Alhaji Haruna Rasheed and Barrister Omotayo Alade-Fawole were testifying in a libel suit filed by Kashamu challenging a letter by Obasanjo to President Goodluck Jonathan published in two newspapers of December 12, 2013 which alleged he was wanted in the USA for drug-related offences.
Kashamu is seeking the sum of N20 billion in damages against the former president for “maliciously and recklessly” publishing a letter titled: ‘Before It’s too late’ which was addressed to President Jonathan in December 2013.
While being cross examined on their witness’ statements by defence counsel Gboyega Oyewole, Alhaji Haruna, who claimed to be an associate of Kashamu, averred that: “My understanding of the publication about the plaintiff is that the plaintiff is a criminal” adding, “since I read the aforementioned publication I have dissociated myself from the plaintiff and our relationship has not been cordial as before.”
When they were asked if they were aware that Kashamu allegedly failed to clear his name over his detention in the United Kingdom for extradition hearing to USA on alleged drug-related offences in 1998, the witnesses denied knowledge of the issue.
Counsel to Kashamu, Alex Izinyon (SAN) applied for an adjournment to enable him produce an additional witness in court.
Justice Valentine Ashi consequently adjourned the suit to November 17 for continuation of hearing.
