Lagos High Court Convicts Evans For Kidnapping

May Serve Life Jail

An Ikeja High Court, Lagos, presided over by Justice Hakeem Oshodi, today convicted Mr.
Chukwudimeme Onwuamadike (alias Evans) and two others on the charge of kidnapping.

Justice Hakeem Oshodi convicted Evans and the two others for conspiracy and kidnapping of a businessman, Donatus Dùru.

The court found them guilty of a two-count charge of kidnapping the Managing Director of Maydon Pharmaceuticals Limited, Donatus Dunu.

The two others convicted alongside Evans are Uche Amadi and Okwuchukwu Nwachukwu.

The judge held that the prosecution had succeeded in proving the charge against the three convicts beyond a reasonable doubt.

Justice Oshodi however discharged and acquitted Ogechi Uchechukwu and two former soldiers, Chilaka Ifeanyi and Victor Aduba, for lack of sufficient evidence linking them to the crime.
