Evans The Alleged Kidnapper To Be Tried In Lagos
#1
Speaker of the Lagos state House of Assembly,
Mudashiru Obasa, has 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.
Reports say that 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.
Evans was allegedly moved from Lagos to Abuja after
very heart-rending confessions about how he made
billions of naira during the alleged criminal activities
Lagos state currently has very strict laws against
kidnapping with death sentence and life imprisonment
gaining prominence.
Obasa, who took time to answer questions from
participants, also said the Assembly decided to pass the
Neighbourhood Safety Corps law after the Inspector-
General of Police complained about shortage of officers
to effectively take care of the country.
The speaker, who was reacting to fears raised by
participants about kidnapping and ritual killings in
some parts of the state, also said in the last one year,
eight bills and 72 resolutions had been passed by the
House.
“Among these laws are: Neighbourhood Safety Corps
Law; Kidnapping prohibition law; Lagos Property
Protection law; Environmental Protection law amongst
others to tackle security and other problems in the
state.
“Lagosians have benefited from all these laws and we
shall not rest on our oars. We have also held MDAs to
account through effective and efficient oversight
functions,” Obasa said.
The speaker also said Lagos state House of Assembly
will continue to pursue excellence. One of such ways is
to always come up with bills to protect the interests of
the residents.
He noted that under his watch, the House of Assembly
has become the first to live-steam its proceedings
among state legislatures in the country
Obasa noted that democracy cannot be sustained
without the media and civil society. He also pleaded
for support noting that not less than six speakers of
state Assemblies have been removed in recent past.
“To sustain democracy we must protect the legislature,”
he said while urging them "to be objective and
magnanimous in their criticisms."
It was reported earlier that a Federal High Court in
Lagos awarded a cost of N20,000 against Mr Olukoya
Ogungbeje, counsel to the suspected kidnapper Evans.
Justice Abdulazeez Anka, who gave the ruling,
however, warned Evan’s lawyer to desist from
“practices unbecoming of a legal practitioner.”
The judge gave the order while adjourning a
fundamental human rights suit filed on behalf of Evans
by Ogungbeje over alleged illegal detention.

punishment Evans should be made to pass through:
