Alleged Nigerian kingpin 'kidnapper' Evans sues police chief

By: Ramjoe (M) |Time : July 01, 2017, 06:35:25 AM
An alleged head of a kidnapping ring in Lagos, Nigeria, is suing the Inspector-General of Police.
Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, who is better known as Evans, says he was unlawfully detained and a subject of trial by media.
He stated that he should be charged or released.
Police have told the BBC that they obtained an order from the Federal High Court to hold him for three months to enable them carry out investigations.
In Nigeria, suspects are supposed to be charged within 48 hours of arrest and Mr Onwuamadike was detained nearly three weeks ago.
At the time he was paraded before the media with the police celebrating his capture.
They have been under pressure to tackle a wave of kidnappings in and around Lagos state.

The police spokesman, chief superintendent Jimoh Moshood said that the suit was "mischievous". and that police had sought more time from the courts because the suspect is accused of serious offences including "murders and armed robbery".

Damages demanded
The BBC's Haruna Shehu reports that since his arrest, Mr Onwuamadike, who has acquired notoriety in the country as reportedly being a kidnap kingpin, has given several interviews disclosing some of his methods and tactics.
In his law suit, Mr Onwuamadike is claiming $1m (£780,000) in damages.

Either this man is seriously deluded, or a hardened criminal taking his luck too far.

"The media trial" he alleges was the one that HE HIMSELF conducted when he openly confessed to crimes of kidnapping, and even gave details of amounts, place and times.
He lost the plot when he sang like a bird after his capture, undermining his constitutional rights to remain silent after his arrest.
There is a reason the arresting officer always says to the suspect "you have the right to remain silent and ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU IN THE COURT OF LAW".
He basically tried and convicted himself, and only awaiting formal trial to fulfill all righteousness.

On another note, he should really thank his stars that he was not arrested in Anambra state because he would have since been killed and his house bulldozed!

Although I am not a lawyer but i know that this ,an is not yet guilty because no court of law has pronounced him guilty. He still has the right to sue and be sued. Although based on his confessions he has convicted himself but there is still a benefit of a doubt until judgment is pronounced

I'm not a lawyer either but from this reply, brother, you made it pretty clear you're not one.
