Billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, on Thursday filed a fresh suit against the Nigeria Police Force. Evans’ suit filed before the Federal High Court in Lagos is seeking the release of 25 Mack trucks, which he claimed were seized from him on June 15, 2017.
In the suit, counsel to the suspected billionaire kidnapper, Olukoya Ogungbeje, argued that the trucks were seized without a court order, adding that the seizure was a violation of his client’s right. Ogungbeje urged the court to order the police to release the trucks to Evans through him.
The lawyer listed the number plates of some of the said trucks as BDG 78 XT, GGE 491 XU, FST 742 XT, AGL 219 XT, BDG 79 XT, AGL 222 XT, GGE 492 XU, AGL 220 XT and GGE 489 XU.
Consequently, he prayed the court to award the sum of N200m as general and exemplary damages against the police. He anchored his prayer on what he termed violation of Evans’ rights under sections 36, 43, and 44 of the 1999 constitution.
