Alleged Kidnap Kingpin Evans Sues Police Over Unlawful Seizure Of Properties And Personal Effects

Evans alleged to be a mastermind of a kidnap ring has instituted a new legal action  against the Police at a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos seeking certain reliefs from the Court. 

The suit seeks an ordering mandating the police to release his two properties situate  in the  Magodo area of Lagos State without any conditions attached.

The suspected kidnap kingpin seeks damages of  N1 billion against the police as well as the tendering of a public apology to his person.

The N1billion is said to be general and exemplary damages for the alleged forceful seizure of his houses without due process as no court order was given to the effect  and a perpetual injunction barring  them from tampering or taking any action against him or any of his properties as his criminal lawsuit remains pending.

In addition to his two properties ,Evans highlighted other properties unlawfully seized to include N50 million cash, a wrist-watch worth $170,000, a phone worth $30,000 and five pieces of Saphono Rucci Diamond rings worth $100,000.

Others items reported as seized are three Italian travel bags worth $55,000 dollars, 10 Spanish shoes each worth N2.5 million, 20 KVA inverter set worth N10 million and two sets of dining table worth N8 million.

The application also prayed the court to award  N4 million as the cost of action against the police.

His lawyer Olukoya Ogungbeje instituted  the suit against the Inspector General of Police, the Nigeria Police Force, the Intelligence Response Team, (IRT), ACP Abba Kyari and DSP Phillip Rieninwa.

As of this time,  no tentative date has however been set  for the hearing of the suit filed against the Police Force.

  1. The alleged king pin still have odersity to sue the Nigeria police in detention what exactly is happening with his case I hope it will not be sweep under the carpet .

  2. They are not serious. So he has all these assets and then decides to use his pending case as an excuse. Well, if they had good lawyers, they would know what to do.

  3. What is happening in this country imagine Evan whose news rented the air as a kidnaper now sued Nigerian police again aohh dis country.

  4. What a society we live in. Some smart lawyers have pulled him aside to do this, so they can profit from the loot forgetting the source of his wealth. Everyone will pay for their wicked ways ultimately.

  5. Only in Nigeria will a criminal take the police authorities to court over trivial things such as the seizure of his properties during an ongoing investigation.

  6. Nigeria police sef don tire me, you just keep using his properties and generating income which does not benefit the masses, after this case will die a natural death despite all the noise.

  7. Despite all the crimes he commited he still has the gut to sue the police for seizing his property.where did he get the money to buy those expensive properties?if i am the president of this country i will oder the security to kill him silently.
