Court orders police to produce Evans' in-law

The Federal High Court in Lagos yesterday ordered the police to produce Mr. Okwuchukwu Obiechina, a brother-in-law of suspected kidnapper Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike (alias Evans).

Obiechina is praying the court to order his release from detention.

He claimed to have been arrested due to his relationship with Evans.

Evans and five others were arraigned before Justice Hakeem Oshodi of the Lagos State High Court.

While Evans and two others pleaded guilty to the charges, the remaining defendants pleaded not guilty.

The prosecution said the defendants between February 14 and April 12 at Obokun Street, Ilupeju, Lagos, armed with guns and other weapons, captured and detained Mr. Duru Donatus.

Before he was charged, Evans filed a suit at the Federal High Court praying it to order his release or for the police to charge him.

Obiechina, through his lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbej e, said despite Evans being arraigned, the police kept him in detention since June 2.

He and his wife, Nzube, Evans’ sister, sued the Commissioner of Police in Lagos, the Police and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Lagos.

In a supporting affidavit deposed to by Obiechina’s relative, Okoliagu Abunike, the applicant said he was arrested by a team of policemen led by Phillip and Christian.

The deponent said the officers bragged that no court would order Obiechina’s release.

“Since June 26, the first applicant is still being detained at the cell of the respondents even beyond the constitutionally allowed time.

“The applicant has not committed any offence known to law to warrant being arrested and detained by the operatives of the respondents.

“The applicant has not committed any offence known to law that will warrant the infringement of his right to life, personal liberty, fair hearing, freedom of movement and dignity of human per son,” Abunike said.

Justice Idris directed Ogungbeje to put the police on notice of his application.

He ordered the police to produce Obiechina before him tomorrow (Thursday) and to justify his continued detention.
