    Kidnap ‘kingpin’ Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, and his co-defendant Victor Aduba were on Monday each given a sentence of 21 years in prison for their roles in the kidnapping of one Sylvanus Hafia by the Lagos State Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja.

    Evans and his co-defendant were found guilty on all four counts of conspiracy, kidnapping, and unlawful possession of weapons by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo.

    On June 23, 2014, in Kara Street, Amuwo Odofin in Lagos, Evans was accused of conspiring to abduct Hafia and demanding a ransom of $2 million.

    He had pleaded not guilty to the accusations.

    Justice Hakeem Oshodi had earlier given him (Evans) and two others a life sentence for their involvement in a plot as well as the kidnapping of Donatus Dunu, the Managing Director of Maydon Pharmaceuticals Limited.
