Kidnapper Evans, a notorious kidnapper who had been the brain behind several kidnapping activities in some cities of Nigeria like Port Harcourt, Lagos State, etc.

It has been rumored that a Lagos State Court had sentenced Evans and his cohorts to Life Imprisonment or a Death Sentence.

If this is true, then it is in accordance with the Lagos State 2016 Kidnapping Prohibition Bills which Former Governor Ambode signed into Law after it was passed in 2019 by the Lagos State House of Assembly.


The Bill goes a long way to punish criminal elements who involve in Kidnapping within Lagos State.

Even criminal elements involved in collecting ransom from the victim's friends or relatives.


In any situation where the victims die while in captivity, such criminal elements if caught was would get a Death Sentence.


It has been four years since the Law Enforcement agencies apprehended Evans and his gang members and till now, justice is yet to be served.


We hope the law will take its course soon.


What do you think about this?
