A Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos, on Monday, sentenced kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, aka Evans, and his co-defendant, Victor Aduba, to 21 years imprisonment for kidnapping one Sylvanus Hafia.
Evans and Aduba 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.
They were also alleged to have captured and detained Hafia and demanded a ransom of $2m.
The accuse, however, pleaded not guilty to the four charges.
The Presiding Judge, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo, held that the sentence would serve as a deterrent to other aspiring kidnappers.
