Evans denies ordering suit against police

Suspected billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, alias Evans, has dissociated himself from the recent suits filed on his behalf against the Police before a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos by lawyer Olukoya Ogungbeje.
Ogungbeje, in the two suits, had also demanded N300 million as general and exemplary damages against the Police for alleged illegal detention and unconstitutional media trial.
Speaking with Channel Television in Police detention, monitored in Lagos, the suspect dismissed the suits as an attempt by some people to put him in more trouble.
He said: “I have no hand in any case filed against the Police and I did not speak with any lawyer or my father to file a case on my behalf.
“All I will say is that they should temper justice with mercy.”
The suspect added that even if he was released by the Police, he would not go because those he had kidnapped and collected millions of naira as ransom from will kill him.
