BREAKING: Evans Suffers Setback In Court
A Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday failed to sit on the case filed by Evans the kidnapper.
The court had on August 28 adjourned the fundamental rights suit filed by Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike (Evans) against the IG and the Commissioner of Police in Lagos till Tuesday, September 5, 2017.
Evans who was arrested on June 10 is challenging his continued detention by the police.
In the 300m Naira suit, he is asking that he be charged to court or be released but the case has since taken over by events.
Evans pleaded guilty to a two-count charge of conspiracy and kidnapping before a judge of the Ikeja High Court on Wednesday, August 30.
The case was brought against him by Lagos state government and further hearing has been adjourned till October 19.
At Tuesday's hearing of the fundamental rights suit, presiding judge, Justice Chuka Obiozor only listened to the counsel of the police.
The police had at the last sitting of the court brought applications seeking to set aside delivering judgement in the case.
The police through its counsel, David Igbodo told the court that it did not authorise any lawyer to represent the organisation in the case.
On Tuesday, Igbodo again told the court that events have overtaken the case because Evans has been arraigned and is presently facing criminal charges in another court.
Evans lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbe was not in court.
