Breaking! Billionaire kidnapper Evans wins first case in court

Justice Abdulaziz Anka of a Lagos Federal High Court Wednesday, August 16, ruled that the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans against the Nigeria Police Force will proceed.

Justice Anka gave the ruling while dismissing the objections of counsel to the Nigeria Police Force, Emmanuel Eze, during proceedings in Evans’ N300m suit.

He agreed with counsel to Evans, Olukoya Ogungbeje, that service on the first and second respondents had been properly effected.

The first and second respondents in the suit are the Inspector General of Police and the Nigeria Police Force.

The other respondents are the Lagos State Police Commissioner and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

Justice Anka also ruled that leave was not required for the matter to be heard during vacation, as Order 4 Rule 5 of the Fundamental Rights Enforcement Procedure Rules of 2009 enjoins the court to pursue speed and justice on issues of fundamental human rights.

It could be recalled that the suspected kidnapper, Evans, is challenging his continued detention since June 10 without arraignment.
