BREAKING: Judgment On alleged Kidnapper Evans ‎Stalled

A federal court in Lagos on Tuesday adjourned till September 5 the suit seeking for the fundamental rights enforcement of alleged kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, popularly known an Evans.

The court had fixed Tuesday to deliver its judgment.

The court fixed a new date after the police brought applications seeking to set aside the delivering of the judgment among others.

The judge said the counsels would argue, on the adjourned date, why he should not deliver his judgment.

A Lagos Federal High Court, on Tuesday failed to deliver judgment in the N300m fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans against the Nigerian Police Force.

The presiding judge, Justice Abdulaziz Anka, reserved ruling on the suit following claims by the police that the Inspector General of Police had not been party to the proceedings.

The Force said due to the above reason, the court could not go ahead with judgment as it has to hear from all parties involved in the matter.

Against this backdrop, Justice Anka adjourned the case till September 5, 2017.

Justice Anka had few weeks ago ordered that the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by Evans against the Nigeria Police Force would go on.

The judge had dismissed the objections of Emmanuel Eze, the counsel for the third and fourth respondents, and agreed with counsel to the kidnap kingpin, Olukoya Ogungbeje, that service on the first and second respondents had been properly effected.
