Kidnapping: Evans’ co-defendants to face trial, court rules

A judge of the Ikeja High Court has ruled that four co-defendants of alleged kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans have case to answer.

Justice Hakeem Oshodi on Friday dismissed their ‘no case submission’ application.

The co-defendants are Ogechi Uchechukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi, Okwuchukwu Nwachukwu and Victor Aduba.

The judge held that there are substantial evidence, especially the confessional statements of the defendants, to warrant their trial alongside Evans.

Ogechi Uchechukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi, Okwuchukwu Nwachukwu and Victor Aduba had filed no-case submissions, praying the court to dismiss the charges against them by the Lagos State government.

Evans is standing trial alongside Uche Amadi, Ogechi Uchechukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi, Okwuchukwu Nwachukwu and Victor Aduba over the alleged kidnap of the Chief Executive Officer of Maydon Pharmaceutical Limited, Mr Donatius Dunu.

They were arraigned on August 30, 2017 on two counts of conspiracy and kidnapping.
