Evans' Lawyer Says Police Cannot Charge Him
#1
Olukoya Ogungbeje, lawyer to notorious kidnapper
Evans, has revealed that the Nigeria Police Force is yet
to charge the suspect to court because it had no
evidence against him.
Ogungbeje told The Sun that the police is holding his
client unnecessarily since his arrest on June 10 and
trying to brainwash him.
He said: “ We are not saying that we want to ensure
that our client escapes justice at all costs. What we are
saying is that we were given letter of representation and
properly briefed and we have the claim to represent him
within the confines of the law.
“As we speak, there is no single evidence of the matter,
do you know that there is no single witness in that
matter, do you know that no single case file has been
opened on that matter? He has been moved to Abuja.
“Someone that we did not have access to while in Lagos
Police Command, how do you think that we will be able
to access him in Abuja? The police keep on brainwashing
him, they keep on threatening him, they keep on
deceiving him. Take him to court, that is what the law
says. The police are only playing the ostrich.
“Do you know as his lawyer, I have been denied access
to him, do you know that the father, his mother, his wife
and children have been denied access to him? The police
are not telling the truth. Why have they not published
the court order they claimed to have got? Let them name
the judge.
“They are only misinforming the public. They are not
bold enough to publish the order. In short, they don?t
have it. The police have been mischievous. There is
more to it than meet the eye. The matter is in court and
we should allow the court to handle the case and wait
for the outcome of the matter.”
Ogungbeje said he was not the only one barred from
seeing Evan as even his wife, children and parents
have been refused access to him since he was arrested
There is also worry that Evans may have been killed
by the police since nobody has access to him.
A south-east based member of Evan’s family, who
spoke on condition of anonymity, said:
“We are scared something terrible may have happened
to him because of the way police has handled this
matter so far especially the way his movement from
Lagos was shrouded in secrecy. How would we have
known if not your paper (Saturday Sun) which exposed
the move in your report last weekend?
“From our own investigation, we learnt he was first
dumped in an underground cell at the force
headquarters in Abuja. Though we have also heard that
he has been moved to a secret location believed to be the
FCID cell in Garki area of Abuja, we are yet to confirm
that or his exact location and wellbeing as we speak?”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com reported earlier that Speaker of
the Lagos state House of Assembly Mudashiru Obasa
hinted that alleged notorious kidnapper,
Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, better known as
Evans, may be prosecuted in the state .
The argument is that most of his alleged criminal
activities were carried out in Lagos state where he was
also arrested in his Magodo estate mansion.
Obasa gave the hint on Thursday, July, 13, at the 2nd
edition of the state House of Assembly/Media and Civil
Society organisations parley where issues relating to
security dominated discussions.
