It has been sometime since we last heard from Billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, popularly known as Evans. Evans reportedly cried out to the judge at the Lagos State High Court that he is being maltreated and not fed well at the Kirikiri Maximum prison.
Evans reportedly refused to come down from the Black Maria vehicle which conveyed him and other suspects to the court today, which prompted the intervention of Justice Adedayo Akintoye to order the prison warders to bring him into the courtroom.
According to ChannelsTV, when he eventually came down, Evans was handcuffed into the courtroom and led to the dock.
While in the dock, he raised his hand and told the judge that he had something to say.
When he was allowed to speak, the suspected kidnapper told Justice Akintoye that he was not being treated well in prison.
”I have an explanation to make. Since I have been in the maximum prison, they have been maltreating me; no visit, they don’t feed me well. I have an eye problem and I cannot see far.”
The warder from Kirikiri Maximum Prison, however, denied these claims.
He told the court that Evans received care like every other inmate, and that he had been seeing a doctor since he complained about his health.
“We have been treating him very well, he is well fed, and people have been visiting him. A doctor has been checking him. The doctor came to check him yesterday (Sunday) and even this morning before coming to court.
“He was saying he can’t be in court that he is not feeling fine, but when the doctor checked him yesterday and this morning, the doctor said he was healthy and that he sees no reason why he can’t be in court,” he said.
