Kidnap Kingpin Evans Files Another Suit, Demands N300m as Damages



Kidnap Kingpin Evans Files Another Suit, Sues for N300 Million as Damages


Chukwudi Dumeme Onwuamadike aka Evans, the suspected kidnap kingpin has filed another suit against the police seeking N300 million for illegal detention.

Evans had on Wednesday filed a suit at the Federal High Court, Lagos seeking an order compelling the police to charge him to court or release him unconditionally from its custody.

The Inspector General of Police, the Nigerian Police Force, the Commissioner of Police in Lagos, and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Lagos Command were respondents.

The new suit has the same respondents, and the money, according to Evans, is for general and exemplary damages against the police for alleged illegal detention and unconstitutional media trial.

The suit was also filed at the Federal High Court, Lagos.

His suit seeks a declaration that his detention since June 10 without arraignment violates his fundamental human rights as stated in the 1999 constitution.

He is also seeking an order compelling the respondents to pay him the sum of N300 million jointly for illegal detention and the harm the media trial has caused him, and an order of perpetual injunction, restraining the respondents from further arresting, detaining, harassing, investigating or inviting him in relation to the facts of his case.

    Of course he has the guts to sue, when our justice system is as messed up as our economy. They should release him, after all, they have proved a point- That they can arrest a kidnapper. Everything else is secondary. Rada rada!

    so he is still trying to kidnap the Nigerian people and demanding $1m ransome (NGN 300M)….Oloribobo ni bobo yi mehn.

    That his lawyer is pushing him to hell quicker than he imagines. The guy has been watching too much american tv…. WAKEUP boo, you are dealing in Naija.

    Evans seems to have forgotten he has no leverage after all the things he has said….

    Just like a robber or prostitue his entitled to a doctor/ nurse when they get injured / get a disease so does Evans has a right to a lawyer to fight for his human right. I’m not trying to justify his wrongs but rather blame the police for keeping him for too long rather than charge him to court, it quite suspicious and probably doing that for their own profit, probably need him to pay a huge amount for bail?

    Serves the police right! Imagine if all the revelations came up during his trial? Twld have been excellent! Instead they decided on media trial to enable his lawyer know which angle to formulate defence and frustrate the case.

    Anyways they’ve gotten a media conviction following media trial so they should be consoled wen they lose the court trial. At least there are no other surprises! Idiots!

    I thought they said he had repented? Still trying to make money off the justice system..
    They should counter sue him for 600million in damages he did to his victims…..sociopath.

    Not supporting his actions in any way, but i ship this law suit thing. He’s still a suspect, hasn’t been tried in court, for all his lawyer cares, all the confession he made was made under duress. But Nigerian police were busy carrying him on tour like he’s about to drop an album. Doing public interview for a suspect that hasn’t been tried in court, smh.

    The Nigerian system and NPF have finally met their match. Instead of them to do the right thing and charge this man and his gang, give them a trial and maybe finally execute the guys, they’re turning this thing to a circus.

    This guy doesn’t know what he is up against. By the time he is dealt with, he won’t know what hit him. I know that Nigeria is a country where a lot of people commit heinous crimes and go unpunished, but Evan’s case is going to be different.

    A lot of high profile Nigerians have vested interest in this case. They all know that a free Evans is must likely gonna kidnap them or their children tomorrow, so they’ll do all it takes to ensure that he gets a life sentence or a death penalty.

    Nigeria, we are from the winning side and Victory is ours. The battle however is not over.
    No individual/group will hold the nation in fear.
    To whomever calculated the angle to grant this individual a case, there is also another angle. in fact several angles!

    This is a call to action. Law abiding citizens, peace lovers, it is our job to protect our land. Not just with words but with knowledge. and the correct application of that knowledge for situations like these. Let us apply ourselves. Everyone should do their part.
    One person’s greed cannot hold us hostage naaa.
    We cannot wait for only high profile Nigerians, or the government or police. Churches, Mosques, Community centres, Lawyers, Mentors and Mentees, The Nigerian Thespian Community, MUAs, Maiguards, Thought leaders, PR specialists, Mothers, Fathers, Doctors, everyone of us have high stakes in this nation. If you are about Your Purpose, 9ja for sure has a story in it oh.
    We can do much more than gossip about this. (Thank you Bellanaija for a platform to dialogue growth)
    How do we get to live within our means but aspire for growth as humanely as possible? What is this slippery catch-up slope we are so inadvertently committed to?

    Enough about the flaunting of wealth on social media or the chop-clean-mouth mentality please. We have minds that can do much more than that. Lets employ them.

    One love my people

    I’ve been shaking my head at the Nigerian police since they arrested the guy. He even looked like someone punched him in the face in one of the videos i saw. I feel for the judge already because it’s no longer going to be straightforward even with his confession.

    I kept wondering why his confessions were so public? I actually tuned the whole thing out cos it got tiring. I was wondering if his confessions was a strategy by the police cos I refused to believe they were so stupid. But it seems he was the strategist, now he has turned around to claim that he has been harassed, next thing he would say those confessions were forced. Let’s wait to see what the outcome would be.
