GhenGhen: Police lose as court awards N2m in favour of Evans’ brother-in-law

Brother in-law to Billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, alias Evans, Okwuchukwu Obiechina, on Monday floored the Nigerian Police Force at the Lagos Division of the Federal High Court.

The court awarded a N2m cost against the Nigerian Police Force over the detention of Obiechina.

Obiechina, had in a fundamental rights enforcement suit filed before the court said his arrest and detention was unconstitutional.

Ruling on the matter, Justice Justice Mohammed Idris, declared Obiechina’s arrest and detention unconstitutional.

Justice Idris held that the remand order which the police claimed to have obtained from a magistrates’ court was invalid.

The judge also ordered the police to immediately release Obiechina unconditionally or charge him to court if they have any case against him.

He further ruled that the police should tender a public apology to Obiechina which should be published in two national dailies.
