Evans

 By Moji Eniola and Adenike Ayodele

An Ikeja High Court has sentenced kidnap kingpin, Chukwudimeme Onwuamadike (alias Evans) and two others to life imprisonment for conspiracy and kidnapping.

In a three-hour judgment on Friday, Justice Hakeem Oshodi also convicted two of Evans’s co-defendants, Uche Amadi and Okwuchukwu Nwachukwu.

Oshodi found the three persons guilty of conspiracy and kidnapping.

The judge, however, discharged and acquitted the other co-defendants, Ogechi Uchechukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi, an ex-soldier; and Victor Aduba, also an ex-soldier.

He held that there was no evidence linking them to the crimes.
