The internet is awash, following what notorious kidnapper, Chukwudimeme Onwuamadike popularly known as Evans said in court on Tuesday, August 3.
According to reports, Evans told the court that he is not a kidnapper, but a businessman who deals in Horlicks and ornaments.
“My lord, I live at Fred Shoboyede street in Magodo phase II, my name is not Evans and I am businessman,” Evans said.
It was gathered that he disputed all the allegations leveled against him by the Lagos State Government.
Evans also claimed that his nickname is not Evans, and he was forced to confess being a kidnapper, after four people were killed extrajudicially in his presence by the police, in an attempt to force him confess to the crime.
Going further, Evans denied knowing or meeting his co-defendants before being apprehended by the authorities, except on the day they’re paraded by the Area F police command in Ikeja, Lagos state, as members of a kidnapping gang.
This development is coming after Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of an Ikeja Special Offences Court, gave the prosecution in the trial of the alleged billionaire kidnapper a “last chance to put its house in order.”
According to reports, the judge frowned at the slow pace of proceedings, which began in 2017.
