  • Kidnapper Evans’ Lawyer Loses Court Case, To Pay N500,000 Fine
  • The lawyer standing for kidnap kingpin,
    Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, aka Evans, has
    lost yet another case in court.
    Evans’ counsel, Olukoya Ogungbeje, was defeated
    on Friday, when Justice Ibrahim Buba of the
    Federal High Court in Lagos dismissed two
    fundamental rights applications filed by him,
    according to an online medium, NewsMakers.
    Ogungbeje had reportedly filed the case on behalf
    of his clients, Messrs Chief Kenneth
    Chukwuemeka Ajoku and Chidinma Ozurumba,
    against the Economic and Financial Crimes
    Commission, but it was dismissed for lack of
    merit and for being frivolous.
    The judge also awarded a total cost of N500,000
    against the two petitioners.
    Other respondents in Ajoku’s suit are a Lagos-
    based lawyer, Mr. Taiwo Kupolati, Folorunsho
    Sholanke, Jide Olaleye, Abraham Ogunleye, Kolade
    Akinwunmi and Dr. Ishaku Danladi Msheliza.
    The two petitioners, in suits marked FHC/L/
    CS/736/2017 and FHC/L/CS 803/2017, had urged
    the court to declare that the arrest and detention
    by the operatives and agents of EFCC on May 4, at
    the instigation of other respondents for taking up
    the brief of his client and without cause, was
    “illegal, wrongful, unlawful, and unconstitutional as
    it violates the applicant’s fundamental rights as
    guaranteed under sections 33, 34, 35 and 36 of
    the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of
    Nigeria.”
    Responding to the suits, the EFCC, in two separate
    counter-affidavits deposed to by Ayodele Samuel
    and Makinde Adebayo, and argued before the
    court by Banjo James, urged the judge to refuse
    the applicants’ applications for being frivolous and
    lacking in merit.
    Delivering judgment on the two applications on
    Friday, Justice Buba, while dismissing the two
    applications for lacking in merit and being
    frivolous, awarded a total cost of N500,000
    against the two applicants in favour of the EFCC
    and other respondents.
    Two weeks ago, Ogungbeje filed such fundamental
    rights suit against police authorities in a bid to
    set Evans free, claiming that the police illegally
    detained the suspect who had made a series of
    televised confessions on how he had kidnapped
    his victims and kept them for as long as seven
    months until their families coughed out as much
    as $1m.
    A victim’s son had revealed that his 86-year-old
    father was killed by Evans and his gang after he
    had paid a huge ransom.
