LAGOS OCTOBER 19TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Notorious billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike also known as Evans, has pleaded not guilty, at the continuation of his trial at the Lagos high court, Ikeja, Lagos, on Thursday, October 19.
Evans was brought into court along with five other suspects – four men and one lady – and all of them were handcuffed.
After calling the case, the presiding judge stood it down for 45 minutes in order to allow the prosecution and defense counsels to confer.
Afterwards, the judge returned and Evans and the other five co-accused persons all entered ‘not-guilty’ pleas after an amendment was made to the charges leveled against them. This comes despite the fact that the billionaire kidnapper had initially pleaded ‘guilty’ at his first trial appearance.
