You’ve got case to answer, Court tells Evans co-defendants
A Lagos High Court judge, Justice Hakeem Oshodi on Friday ruled that the co-defandants of Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, who are facing trial for kidnapping some high profile Nigerians, have case to answer.
Justice Oshodi in a ruling on their no-case submission, said there are substantial evidence, especially the confessional statements of the defendants, before the court that require them to open their defense.
Evans’ co-defendants, Ogechi Uchechukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi, Okwuchukwu Nwachukwu and Victor Aduba, had filed no-case submissions, asking the court to dismiss the charges against them while the second defendant, Uche Amadi did not file a no-case submission.
The matter was adjourned till October 16 for continuation of trial at the instance of Evan’s new lawyer, Oyekunle A. Falabi who asked the court to give him time to familiarize himself with the details of the matter.
