On Thursday, a Lagos High Court condemned billionaire kidnapper Chukwudimeme Onwuamadike, often known as Evans the kidnapper, to death.
Evans, who was charged with kidnapping, pleaded not guilty before his sentence by an Igbosere High Court in Lagos.
He was also charged with attempting to kidnap Mr Vincent Obianodo, the chairman of Young Shall Grow Motors.
Other charges against him include conspiracy, kidnapping, and illegal firearm possession.
Evans was charged with Joseph Emeka, Chiemeka Arinze, and Udeme Upong, as well as three other defendants.
The Intelligence Response Team of the Inspector General of Police, directed by Abba Kyari, captured him.
Evans was declared wanted in 2013 after reportedly orchestrating the attempted kidnapping of Mr Vincent Obianudo, the owner of the popular ‘Young Shall Grow Motors.’
The suspect was claimed to have been involved in kidnapping operations for almost five years before being apprehended.Do you find 9jadailyfeeds useful? Click here to give us five stars rating!
