Suspected kidnapped kingpin, Chukwudumeme “Evans” Onwuamadike, has filed an application seeking to be released on bail and for his case to be given an accelerated hearing.
Evans filed the application at the resumed hearing of trial on conspiracy and kidnapping at the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja, on Friday.
But the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions, Titilayo Shitta-Bay, described the bail application, seeking accelerated hearing filed alongside an application seeking to quash the charges as conflicting, confusing and an abuse of court processes.
At the previous siting, Evans had made a U-turn as he entered a plea of ‘not guilty’ when he was re-arraigned on a two-count amended charge of conspiracy and kidnapping.
The court proceeding is still ongoing.
