Exposed! Kidnapper Evans controversial N300m suit linked to Buruji Kashamu, Lawyer Ogungbeje is his man

Nigerians were surprised when a lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje, filed a suit on behalf of Notorious kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, otherwise known as Evans against the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, and three others before the Federal High Court in Lagos for alleged illegal detention.
However, what many Nigerians do not know is the connection of Olukoya Ogungbeje, the lawyer who filed the suit with a fugitive drug baron who is the Senator, representing Ogun East, Buruji Kashamu.

Ogungbeje, who heads Lawflex Chambers and is the Chairman of Voice Vanguard, is said to be one of the secret lawyers engaged by Kashamu.
This is apart from Ajibola Oluyede, who handles most of Kashamu’s
cases.

In the suit filed on his behalf by his lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje,
Evans is praying for the order of court to direct the police to
immediately charge him to court if there is any case against him in
accordance with the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
In the alternative, Evans is praying the court to compel the police to
immediately release him unconditionally in the absence of any offence that will warrant his being charged to court.

However, less than 24 hours after he filed the first suit against the
leadership of the Nigeria Police Force, Evans has again filed a fresh
suit, claiming the sum of N300m as general and exemplary damages
against the police for alleged illegal detention and unconstitutional
media trial.

While Nigerians continue to wonder where Evans got his courage to file
the suit from, having himself confessed to the police for committing the offence of kidnapping, investigations by our reporters have revealed that Senator Buruji Kashamu might be the brain behind the
suit.

Multiple sources disclosed that Kashamu, who is known for judgment brokerage could be banking on his hold on a section of the judiciary to put legal impediments on the ways of the police in their bids to prosecute Evans.

Sources said Evans was already considering vying for senate in 2019
before he was arrested and he could have reached out to Kashamu.

It should be recalled that Kashamu’s name featured in the June 2016 controversial judgment of Justice Okon Abang, sacking Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State and ordering the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a certificate of return to Samson Ogah, who is also a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that who
contested the governorship ticket with the governor.
The controversial Ogun State PDP senator was said to have been the one who brokered the controversial judgment at a fee said to be more than N2 billion.

Also, Senate President Bukola Saraki was made to hire Kashamu’s Lawyer, Ajibola Oluyede when the heat on his Code of Conduct became very hot.

Most properties owned by the senator were said to be have been gotten through controversial curt orders, usually gotten from Federal High Courts in Lagos and Abuja.

The crisis rocking the PDP is also as result of controversial judgment
secured by Kashamu.

Kashamu is presently faced with possible extradition to the United
States of America (USA) to face drug charges and as a result of this,
he has made praise-singing of President Muhammadu Buhari and
condemnation of the President’s critics as his major concern.

In January, a USA appeals court upheld a ruling against a Kashamu on the drug charges related to the hit TV show “Orange is the New Black.”

Chicago prosecutors accused Buruji Kashamu of heading a heroin
trafficking ring in the 1990s.

Kashamu had argued that prosecutors want his dead brother instead. In an April 2015 filing, Kashamu asked a district court to prevent his “abduction abroad by U.S. authorities.”

The court dismissed the complaint, and the USA Seventh Circuit Court
of Appeals upheld the ruling. It said USA agents’ attempt to arrest
Kashamu in coordination with local authorities would not constitute
“an attempted abduction.”

A dozen people long ago pleaded guilty in the case, including Piper
Kerman, whose memoir was adapted for the Netflix show.

Kashamu was at a point on exile in Benin Republic.

While on exile in Benin, he was able to expand his Illicit network
with the help of Cali Cartel Drug Lords of Columbia where he amassed so much funds from the export of drugs to America mainly Chicago from which he was able to fund a Presidential aspirant who eventually won.

With his access to the Presidency, he successfully defrauded the
country where he is still wanted for his atrocities. At that time, the
United Nations Office on Drugs and Corruption in West Africa and DEA
(Drug Enforcement Agency USA) had linked and declared him wanted for enormous drug trafficking charges, Money Laundering and Murder.

He was detained at the famous Wormwood scrubs prisons in UK for
several years where he fought extradition to the USA extensively and lost. He eventually absconded to Nigeria while on bail and has since been unable to step out of the shores of Nigeria.

“With his character and antecedents, he is sure capable of being involved in any criminal cartel,” one of our sources said.

So also we cannot jettison the relentless efforts of the nation builders, our esteemed teachers.

Several others who were supposed to equally be representing our interest were found acquiring wealth indiscriminately. It pains a lot. We enjoin our performing honourable to continue in this trend, as the day of reckoning awaits others,” Owoyomi charged.

UNCOVERED: APC Membership Card Found In Kidnapper Evans’ Room

The notorious billionaire kidnapper Chukwudi Onuamadike (aka) Evans has reportedly disclosed to be a card carrying member of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Lagos State branch, after the operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS) with Nigerian Police ransacked his apartment and found the party’s membership card inside a locked box in his private room at Magodo Area of Lagos.

This follows his arrest last Saturday, June 10 in Lagos.

The accused, who claimed to be a card carrying member of the APC in Lagos State, denied having attended any political meeting with the party before now, but maintained that he usually see to the financial obligations of the party and its members both on request and at will.

Evans, as he is simply called, was reportedly arrested inside his palatial mansion in the estate by men of the Nigeria Police Force under the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team led by Assistant Commissioner Abba Kyari.

Debunking the claim by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of the party, APC, Mr Joe Igbokwe, he said the accused was only trying to escape justice by all means, adding that the party had never at any point collected a dine or solicited financial assistance from an individual with such questionable character in the time past.

He said, “I have the boldness and audacity to dissociate APC, Lagos branch from any unholy alliance or relationship claimed to be existing between our party and the arrested kidnapper Evans.

“If truly our party’s membership card was found in his room as claimed by the operatives, definitely it must be that of one of his abducted victims who happens to be our member and not him.

“Nigerians should therefore disregard the claim that our party membership card was found in his (Evans) apartment. We don’t issue out cards to notorious and wicked people like him. In fact, he was never a member of our party.

“Those who are behind the plot to rubbish our party should be reminded that APC as a party is known for fighting corruption and other vices in the country. So there is no way we can be a party to kidnapping or aiding and abetting.”
