The Ikeja Special Offences Court has sentenced kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike popularly known as Evans and his co-defendant Victor Aduba to 21 years imprisonment.
The duo was sentenced by Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo on Monday for kidnapping one Sylvanus Hafia.
The suspects 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.
