Among the cases in court are the ones involving the Vice Chancellor of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, that of the Federal University of Technology, Akure and the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.

“The prevailing case in Ibadan is internet frauds involving young people. The Ibadan office has so far recovered N277, 931,341m from various financial criminals while we have also recovered objects like cars used by fraudsters to perpetrate crimes.”

Kidnapper Evans Wins First Case In Court, To Continue Trial

Anka gave the ruling while dismissing the objections of counsel to the Nigeria Police Force, Emmanuel Eze, during proceedings in Evans’ N300m suit.

The judge agreed with Counsel to Evans, Olukoya Ogungbeje that service on the first and second respondents in the case had been properly effected.

The first and second respondents in the suit are the Inspector General of Police, the Nigeria Police Force. The other respondents are the Lagos State Police Commissioner and the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS.

Justice Anka also ruled that leave was not required for the matter to be heard during vacation as Order 4 Rule 5 of the Fundamental Rights Enforcement Procedure Rules of 2009, enjoins the court to pursue speed and justice on issues of fundamental human rights.

Evans, through his lawyer had filed a N300m lawsuit against the police, challenging his continued detention since June 10 without arraignment.

The billionaire kidnapper is asking the court to award him N300m as exemplary damages for his alleged illegal detention and the alleged harm caused by his media trial.

OMG! Davido Is Now A Criminal Suspect In NAPTIP Investigation On Child Abduction Case


The National Agency for the Prohibition of
Trafficking in Persons has said they have started
investigations into Davido’s Abduction case. While
speaking with a Punch Correspondent who had
called in to know how far the agency had gone, the
Lagos State Zonal Commander of the agency, Mr.
Joseph Famakin, said investigations into the matter
had commenced and both parties have been invited.
However, he noted that, the Agency can only carry
out its duties if the other party involved (the
Adelekes) honour their invitation. His words….
“The case was reported to us on Wednesday and we
have already commenced investigations. That is the
only thing I can say for now. We are known for
doing a diligent job irrespective of who is involved.
“For now, I cannot say anything about the case
because we have just sent out invitations to the
parties involved. I have neither seen nor interviewed
any of them so for now I cannot really say much.
All I can say is that we have commenced a full
scale investigation into the matter after we received
the petition on Wednesday evening.
“It is when we listen to all parties involved that we
would establish if there was a case of human
trafficking or not. There have been no facts
presented to me other than the petition I received.
The people who presented the petition would make
a statement, likewise the other party involved then
we would be able to come to an objective
conclusion. We cannot presuppose.
“I cannot assume what would happen if they refuse
to honour our invitation but when we get to the
bridge, we would cross it. When we start the
investigation, you would be informed but at this
stage, we have just received the petition and we just
commenced,” he said.
