The case of Chukwudumeje George Onwuamadike, the notorious kidnapper also known as Evans, filed at the Federal High Court in Lagos seeking to be charged to court by the Police or freed is the source of excitement. The suit (FHC/LCS/1012/2017) with Nigerian Police Force, Lagos’ Commissioner of Police and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of Lagos Police Command as defendants is on the premises of Sections 35 (1) (c) (3) (4) (5) (a) (b) and 36 of the constitution.
Filed by his Lagos based lawyer (Olukoya Ogungbeje), he is seeking to be charged to court or released on bail.
Arrested on Saturday, June 10, at his 3, Fred Shoboyede Street residence in Magodo (Lagos), Evans’ saga with mind boggling confessions is a riveting tale.

1. The Police will be served the court papers.
2. The case will be assigned to a judge, and a date fixed for trial.
3. The defendants and plaintiff’s lawyers will appear in court and argue their cases.
4. The Police will insist that investigations are on. And based on the critical nature of the case, apply for an order to continue to detain the suspect.
5. The prayer of the Police will be based on the notoriety of the suspect and the dreaded exploits he’s confessed to.
With all the confessions in the public space, all through his trial when he’s eventually arraigned, will Evans be attending court sessions from Police custody? That’s the prerogative of the judge who will determine the case after consideration of both parties’ arguments…
