Justice Hakeem Oshodi of the Lagos State High Court on Tuesday fixed November 5 for adoption of final written addresses in the on-going trial of alleged kidnap kingpin, Chukwudimeme Onwuamadike, alias Evans.
Justice Oshodi fixed the date after all the defendants in the case closed their case over the two-count charge of kidnapping and conspiracy.
Evans was arraigned before the court by the Lagos State government alongside Amadi, Ogechi Uchechukwu, Nwachukwu, Chilaka Ifeanyi and Victor Aduba, all alleged to be members of his kidnapping syndicate.
They were accused of the alleged kidnap of Donatus Duru, the chief executive officer of Maydon Pharmaceuticals.
Before the judge fixed the date, two defendants in the case, Chilaka Ifeanyi and Victor Aduba testified in their own defence.
The two men, who are former soldiers of the Nigerian Army, denied the allegations made against them by the prosecution.
While being led in evidence by his counsel, A. A. Uzoukwu, Ifeanyi said he was acquainted with Aduba and had worked with him as a soldier.
