Nigeria: Evans The Infamous Kidnapping Kingpin Wins First Court Case 

The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos state has moved for the commencement of the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed against the Nigeria Police Force by the notorious kidnapper, Chukwudumebi Onwuamadike a.k.a Evans.                     Dismissing the objections of Emmanuel Eze, counsel to the third and fourth respondents, the presiding judge, Justice Abdulazizi Anka, agreed with prosecutor’s counsel, Olukoya Ogungbeje, that the service on the first and second respondents have been appropriately effected.         The Inspector General of Police is the first respondent; while the Nigeria Police Force is the second respondent. Other respondents are the Lagos state Commissioner of Police and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.                 Justice Anka, in his ruling also pointed out that Order 4 Rule 5 of the Fundamental Rights Enforcement Procedures of 2009 enjoins the court to pursue issues bothering on fundamental human rights with speed and as such leave on vacation would thwart the hearing.
