Kidnap Kingpin, Evans fights back.

Suspected Billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike a.k.a. Evans has sued the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and two others over alleged illegal detention and demanding for N300 million naira as compensation for damage.
The alledged Kidnapper whose wife and kids made the news recently, pleading that they release her husband and children's father, Evans had on June 28 filed an ex parte application with reference number FHC/L/CS/1012/2017, before the same court, seeking an order directing the respondents to charge him to court or release him if no charge is preferred against him.
The two other person Evans sued alongside the IG are Commissioner of Police, Lagos State and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Lagos State Police Command.
Evans had been apprehended since June 10, without a charge, or release on bail and this appears to be an infringement on his fundamental rights. His legal counsel a Lagos-based lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje prayed the court to direct the respondents to immediately charge him to court.
No date has been fixed for hearing in this lawsuit yet but i think this will be an eye opener to the Nigerian Police force and the media to henceforth ensure that they move past media trial and immediately charge to court any suspect before these suspects begins to bend the law to their favour especially when they are in possession of money.
