Billionaire kidnapper, Evans, earlier this week caused a stir when he challenged his continued detention in court, describing it
as illegal and also asked for
N300million damages from the police. The police has reacted to this…
Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Abba Kyari, has said the
police obtained the court’s backing to detain the kidnap kingpin,
Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike popularly known as Evans, for 90 days.
He said the detention warrant was obtained on June 21, 2017, contrary
to insinuations in some quarters that Evans was being illegally held by
Kyari explained the detention is to allow for thorough investigation of the suspect.
He told the media yesterday: “All those who want Evans released did
not know that the police had obtained a 90-day warrant to detain him.
“We envisaged that they would do that, hence we beat them to it.”
