Absence Of Evans’ Attorney Delays Re-Arraignment

Due to the absence of both the third and fourth defendants’ attorneys, the re-arraignment of convicted kidnapper Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, before the Lagos High Court in Tafawa Balewa Square was postponed on Tuesday.

Following the transfer of the case files from Justice Adedayo Akintoye, who presided over the initial trial, Evans was hauled before Justice Sherifat Sonaike in two distinct counts so that their case could begin anew.

State prosecutor M.O. Olateju announced his presence for the prosecution when the matter came up for the re-arrest of Evans and others.

The defendants, in the first charge, were charged with conspiracy to kidnap, kidnapping, and attempted murder, preferred against them by Lagos State.
