The notorious billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, a.k.a Evans, on Wednesday, pleaded guilty to kidnapping charges brought against him by the Lagos State Government.He was charged alongside five of his accomplices.
Evans pleaded guilty to a two count charge of kidnapping brought against him by the state. He promptly responded that ‘I am guilty’ when the charges were read to him.
Evans was represented by his counsel, Olukoya Ogungbeje. It can be recalled that presiding judge, Justice Abdulaziz Anka had initially fixed Tuesday to deliver judgment on the suit but a lawyer to the Inspector General of Police, David Igbodo filed a counter affidavit before the court.
Citing reasons for the action, Igbodo said; “It will be an injustice for judgment to be delivered without hearing our own side,”
He further added: “The Inspector General of Police devoted time, efforts, intelligence, and strategies to ensure that he was arrested. He beat strategies for the past six years. When he was arrested, it took time for the police to complete investigations and very soon, Nigerians will be made to know what is the next line of action for Evans.”
