Crime Justice



Appeal Court Dismisses Suspected Kidnapper Evans N200m Suit Case Against The Nigerian Police.

The Court of Appeal, Lagos State Division, has dismissed an appeal filled by the suspected kidnapper Chukwudumeme Onwuaamadike aka Evans, challenging the seizure of his 25 Trucks by the Nigeria police.

The file was dismissed by three justices on the grounds that it lacks merit when the matter came up on Thursday August 12.

while reading the lead judgement, Justice Joseph Ikyegh insisted that the search warrant issued was executed in line with section 144 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act of Nigeria 2015, empowered the police to recover the Trucks.

The Judge also insisted that section 153 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act of Nigeria 2015, allows the Police to retain proceedings of crime until the case Is dissolved.

Justice Joseph also held that since the case was still pending the word ‘confiscate’ as used by Evans counsel was not appropriate.

The Judge therefore upheld the decision of Justice Rabiu - Shagari of the Federal High Court and dismissed Evans appeal for lack of merit.
