An Ikeja Special Offences Court in Lagos State heard yesterday why an attempt made by suspected billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike aka Evans, on Chief Obianuju Vincent, the chairman of ‘Young Shall Grow Motors’, failed.
The narration of the failed kidnap attempt was made before Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo by Inspector Idowu Haruna, a member of the Special Intelligence Response Unit of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), who told the court that it failed because the defendants were not expecting their victim to go out that night with escorts.
The Nation reported that, Haruna said the attack on Obiajunu was carried out on August 27, 2013 along 3rd Avenue, FESTAC Town, Lagos while returning from where he had gone to play local “draft game” with his friends.
During the gun duel between Evans and his men and the escort of “Young Shall Grow Motors’ chairman, he (Chief Obiajunu) was shot in the left arm. One of his escorts, Corporal Ngozi, was shot dead; his driver, Peter Nweke, was shot dead.
“Three of the kidnappers were shot dead by Inspector Simon, an escort with Chief Obiajunu, while other kidnappers escaped”
Justice Taiwo adjourned the case till December 31 for continuation of trial.
