EvansGATE - Court Awards Evans' Brother In-law N2m, Orders Police to Release Him And Tender Public Apology

The Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday entered judgment against the Nigeria Police Force in the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by one Mr. Okwuchukwu Obiechina said to be the brother-in-law of alleged kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, alias Evans.

Justice Mohammed Idris, in a judgment on Monday, declared Obiechina’s arrest and detention as unconstitutional, holding that the remand order which the police claimed to have obtained from a magistrates’ court to detain him was invalid.

Apart from ordering the police to immediately release Obiechina unconditionally or charge him to court if they have any case against him, the court also awarded N2m damages in his favour against the police.

Justice Idris also ordered the police to tender a public apology to Obiechiana to be published in two national dailies.

  5. His brother isn't the thief, y was he being held. This Evans case will keep being dragged, until we loose interest and forget him. Justice system in Nigeria

    1. This is what happens when you use "connection" to employ people instead of their mental capacity and what they have to offer.

      They get all caught up in the media frenzy and make slips that even the lowest associate in a law firm would not dare make.
