The Nigerian police have explain why they release the alleged gang members of Chukwudumeje Onwuamadike, also known Evans that were arrested earlier.
Dan Suki Galandashi, the Nigerian Deputy Commissioner of Police in Lagos state, recalled that Emeka and two others, Kingsley and Tochukwu, were arrested and charged to court on May 17th.
He said that they were remanded in prison custody before the court granted them bail on June 23.
The commissioner revealed that contrary to speculations in some quarters, they were arrested before Evans was taken.
He said: “Before they were granted bail, Evans was arrested. We did an identification parade and they said they did not know Evans. Evans also claimed not to know any of them.
Since the Inspector-General of Police (IGP’s) creed is to inspire openness, we had no choice than to charge the case to court.
“The court looked at the evidence and released the suspects. The Police did not release them, the court did”.
In other news, Evans has a lawsuit against the Nigerian police to either charge him or release him.
