Ikeja Special Offences Court has sentenced a kidnap kingpin, chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, popularly know as Evans, and his co-defendant, Victor Aduba, to 21 years imprisonment for kidnapping one Sylvanus Hafia.
This contained in a judgement delivered by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Ikeja Special Offences Court on Monday.
They were accused of conspiring and kidnapping Sylvanus Ahanonu Hafia at about 5:30 pm on June 23, 2014, at Kara Street, Amuwo Odofin in Lagos and were alleged to have captured and detained Hafia and demanded a ransom of $2m.
But they pleaded not guilty to the four charges.
The judge held that the sentence would serve as a deterrent to other aspiring kidnappers.
