"I Want To Go Home"; Kidnapper Evans Asks Court To Grant Him Bail

Suspected millionaire kidnapper Evans, reals names Mr. Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, has asked the Lagos state high court to grant him bail.
At the resumed sitting of his trial today, Friday 3rd November, 2017, he also asked the court to give his case an accelerated hearing.

His bail application was, however, opposed by the persecuting counsel who described it as an abuse of court process and an attempt to frustrate the trial.

Titilayo Shitta-Bay, Lagos state director of public prosecutions, said the application of the accused, as well as the prayer to quash the charges brought against him was conflicting and confusing.

After Evans pleaded “not guilty” on an amended two-count charge of conspiracy and kidnapping, the Lagos state government had filed fresh charges of conspiracy and attempted kidnap of Vincent Obianodo, chairman of The Young Shall Grow Motors.

Evans was also alleged to have murdered a policeman attached to Obianodo.

Evans is being tried on several counts of criminal charges bothering on alleged conspiracy, murder and kidnapping.

Dubbed the “most notorious kidnapper” in the country, he was arrested on June 10.

His lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje, has insisted that Evans is innocent.
