    Court Awards N2m To Evans’ Brother-in-law For Wrongful Police Arrest

    The Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday awarded N2million to Mr. Okwuchukwu Obiechina, the brother-in-law of Notorious kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike aka Evans for wrongful police arrest.


    Justice Mohammed Idris revealed that Obiechina’s arrest and detention by the police was unconstitutional while giving his ruling.

    In the suit filed on Tuesday last week, Obiechina and his wife, Nzube, had challenged their illegal detention by the police, claiming they had been in detention since June 2 because of their relationship with Evans.

    According to reports, the couple had listed the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, the Nigeria Police and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) as co-respondents to the suit.

    Justice Idris ruled in favour of Obiechina, stating in the court that the detention was unconstitutional and that the remand order the Police claimed to have secured from a magistrates’ court was invalid.
