COURT SENTENCES EVANS, ACCOMPLICE TO 21 YEARS IMPRISONMENT FOR KIDNAPPING
Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, and his co-defendant, Victor Aduba, have been sentenced to 21 years in prison on Monday by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Ikeja Special Offences Court for kidnapping one Sylvanus Hafia.
They were accused of conspiring and kidnapping Sylvanus Ahanonu Hafia at around 1730hrs on June 23, 2014, at Kara Street, Amuwo Odofin in Lagos, and were alleged to have captured and detained Hafia and demanding a $2 million ransom.
However, they pleaded not guilty to all four charges.
The judge held that the sentence would serve as a deterrent to other aspiring kidnappers.
