Alleged kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, alias Evans, has filed a fresh suit against the Nigeria Police Force, seeking the release of 25 Mack trucks, which he claimed were seized from him.
Accordimg to his lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje, the trucks were seized without a court order, in violation of his client’s rights.
Ogungbeje is asking the Federal High Court in Lagos to order the police to release the trucks to Evans through him (Ogungbeje).
He listed the number plates of some of the said trucks as BDG 78 XT, GGE 491 XU, FST 742 XT, AGL 219 XT, BDG 79 XT, AGL 222 XT, GGE 492 XU, AGL 220 XT and GGE 489 XU.
Ogungbeje wants the court to award N200m as general and exemplary damages against the police for what he termed violation of Evans’ rights under sections 36, 43, and 44 of the 1999 Constitution.
