The Lagos State Police Command has arrested Olukoya Ogungbeje, lawyer to the alleged billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, aka, Evans.
The lawyer was arrested on Wednesday morning.
According to Punch, the officers who were from the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, arrested the lawyer as he parked his car at the Federal High Court in Ikoyi.
It was earlier reported that Justice Hakeem Oshodi of an Ikeja High Court, Lagos on Tuesday warned counsel to Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, otherwise known as Evans that further delays would not be tolerated in the ongoing trial.
Justice Oshodi gave the warning following a 30-minute war of words with Mr Chinonye Obiagwu, Evans’ new defence counsel who had prayed for an adjournment to study the case file.
