Court awards N20, 000 against Evan’s lawyer

A Lagos Federal High Court yesterday awarded N20, 000 against Olukoya Ogungbeje, counsel to Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, who has been arrested and charged for kidnapping for failing to come to court.
A vacation judge, Abdulaziz Anka, who awarded the sum also cautioned Ogungbeje to desist from acts unbecoming of a legal practitioner.
He awarded the punitive cost against him for failure to appear in court. He had, on behalf of his client, filed a N300 million fundamental rights enforcement action against the Inspector-General of Police (IGP).
