Billionaire kidnapper, Evans, partner approach court, seek plea bargain

Evans Plea Bargain

Convicted billionaire kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike popularly known as Evans facing attempted murder charges, has filed a settlement request with the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja.

Evans alongside his co-defendant Joseph Emeka, facing murder, and attempted kidnap have both  opted for the option of a plea bargain.

During the re-arraignment hearing before Justice Adenike Coker on Thursday, prosecutor Yusuf Sule revealed that a plea bargain option is being considered.

Evans and his co-defendant will be re-arraigned on an amended five-counts bordering on murder, attempt to murder, and conspiracy to commit felony to wit: kidnapping and attempt to murder.

Sule told the court that the case was for re-arraignment but he was aware the defendant had applied for a plea bargain.

The prosecutor, however, said that the plea bargain terms were being considered by the Attorney-General of Lagos State, Mr Lawal Pedro (SAN).
