Court Adjourns Evans’ Case Against IGP To July 27

SHARE:

A Federal High Court in Lagos has adjourned till July 27 the fundamental rights suit against Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris filed by kidnap kingpin Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, more popularly known as Evans.


Justice Chuka Obiozor adjourned the case on Thursday due to the failure of Evans’ lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje, to pay the punitive sum of N20,000, which the court ordered on July 13.

The defense lawyer for the police, Effiong Asuquo, explained to the judge that Mr. Ogungbeje gave him a post-dated check for N20,000, which he rejected on the grounds that it violated the court’s order. 

Justice Obiozor agreed and ruled that the court would not hear Evans’ case until the lawyer pays the fine to the police. He further ordered Evans’ counsel to ensure service of the application on the Inspector-General of Police in Abuja.

He then adjourned the matter to Thursday, July 27.
