Evans Loses In Court. by Nk (f): 11:23am on July 3
Nkeiru


100Level, Nigeria.
Billionaire kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans loses in court once again.
The Court of Appeal in Lagos dismissed three appeals by the suspect who was seeking to stop his trial at two high courts in Lagos State, Daily Post reports.
Evans had approached the appellate court to challenge the jurisdiction of the lower courts in the State to continue his trial.
However, a three-man panel of the Court of Appeal led by Justice Jummai Sankey held that Evans’ appeals against the Ikeja High Court were without merit.
Other Justices on the panel were: Justice Philomena Ekpe and Justice Muhammed Mustapha.
In the three appeals, the suspected kidnapper challenged the High Courts’ jurisdiction and sought to strike out and quash the kidnap, attempted murder and murder charges filed by the government against him.
In the first appeal against the ruling of Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of an Ikeja High Court, the first to fourth respondents were: the Lagos State Government and Evans’ co-defendants; Joseph Emeka, Chiemeka Arinze and Udeme Upong
Justice Taiwo, on November 10, 2017, dismissed Evans’ application seeking to quash an amended seven-count charge against him, dated October 26, 2017.
The applicant also challenged the Ikeja High Court’s jurisdiction in the second appeal, where the respondents were the same.
The appellate court consolidated both appeals as Justice Sankey held:
In the third appeal, the first to fifth respondents were Lagos State and Evans’ co-defendants: Uche Amadi, Ogechi Uchechukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi and Victor Aduba.
Evans claimed that Justice Hakeem Oshodi erred in law when he held that the amended information/charge dated October 19, 2017, filed by the first respondent, was incompetent without an accompanying or attached proof of evidence as required by law.
But Justice Philomena Ekpe, who read the lead judgment, dismissed the appeal as being unmeritorious.
