Alleged kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike also known as Evans ‎is currently before the Lagos State High Court in Igbosere.

He is to be arraigned before Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo on charges bordering on kidnapping, murder and illegal possession of firearms.

The fresh charges are separate from the ones pressed against him before the Ikeja division of the court, where he was re-arraigned before Justice Hakeem Oshodi.

At the arraignment on Thursday, he changed his plea to not guilty altering his first statement made on August 30.

The new charges are said to include seven counts of conspiracy and the attempted kidnap of Vincent Obianodo, Chairman of The Young Shall Grow Motors.

Evans was also alleged to have murdered a policeman attached to Obianodo while in another four counts, he allegedly conspired with some others to kidnap a certain Sylvanus Hafia.

Evans was brought to court  on Monday by heavily armed security operatives, some of whom manned the door to the courtroom, screening persons going in.

Evans is seated in the gallery flanked by prison officials as he awaits the arrival of the presiding judge.

Dubbed the “most notorious kidnapper” in the country, he was arrested on June 10 by policemen of the Lagos state command.

Since his arrest, he has reportedly confessed to kidnapping numerous persons from whom he collects “millions of dollars” as ransom.
