Judge Abdulaziz Anka of the Federal High Court of Lagos ordered Tuesday that the trial of the execution of the fundamental rights deposed by the billionaire abductor Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans against the Police of Nigeria, will proceed.
Anka rendered the decision while rejecting the objections of a lawyer to the Nigeria Police Force, Emmanuel Eze, during a prosecution in the Evans N300m trial.
The judge agreed with Evans’s lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje, that the service of the first and second respondents in the case had been properly executed.
The first and second respondents to the trial are the Inspector General of Police, Nigeria Police. The other respondents are the Lagos State Police Commissioner and the anti-theft team, SARS.
Judge Anka also ruled that the leave was not necessary for the matter to be heard during the holidays as section 4 of Order 4 of the 2009 Rules of Procedure for the Enforcement of Fundamental Rights, Court to pursue justice and justice on issues relating to fundamental human rights.
Evans, through his lawyer, filed a N300m lawsuit against the police, challenging his continued detention since June 10 without being pleaded.
The billionaire kidnapper asks the court to award him N300m as exemplary prejudice for his alleged illegal detention and the alleged harm caused by his media trial.
