Suspected kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, otherwise known as Evans has pleaded guilty to the charge of kidnapping.
This follows his arraignment today at the High Court in Lagos by the state government.

Evans promptly responded that ‘I am guilty’ when the charges were read to him. He was represented by his counsel, Olukoya Ogungbeje.

He was arraigned alongside five others; Uche Amadi, Ogechi Izechuwku, Okechukwu Nwachukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi and Victor Chukwumonso, at the court which witnessed a large crowd of interested parties and a presence of security personnel.

While Evans, Amadi and Nwachukwu pleaded guilty to both counts, Izuchukwu, Ifeanyi, and Chukwunomso pleaded not guilty.

Following the plea of all six defendants, the Attorney General of Lagos state, Adeniji Kazeem who led the prosecution asked for a trial date and for all defendants to be remanded in prison custody.

The counsel to Evans, Olukoya Ogungbeje had no objections to the Attorney General’s request for adjournment but he told the court that he has had no access to his client in detention.


Justice Oshodi thereafter ordered the remand of all the defendants at the Kirikiri maximum prison Apapa and adjourned further proceedings till October 19, 2017.

The Attorney-General’s office had earlier said Evans would be docked on various counts, including kidnapping, before Justice Oshodi at 10:00 a.m. The state Attorney-General, Mr. Adeniji Kassim led the team of prosecution.
