By Ademola Akadiri

Alleged billionaire Kidnapper,  Chukwudumeme Onwamadike a.k.a Evans currently facing prosecution has been dumped by his defence counsel led by Mr Olukoya Ogungbeje for personal reasons

Ogungbeje stated this in a recently released press statement  to separate himself and his team from the ongoing criminal prosecution of the alleged kidnapper

He said that his withdrawal from the Criminal charges/cases against his former client was based on series of  life threat repeatedly received by himself and the other  defence lawyers

He emphasised that him and his defence team have fought a good fight thus far despite repeated and sustained threats to their life and had no regrets conducting the Criminal charges of the accused.

Ogungbeje added that for historical references, him and his team have been able to enrich the basic principles of the Legal Criminal Jurisprudence especially the principle premised on ”An accused person being presumed innocent until the contrary is proved,” 

He also stated that no matter the public opinion and the criticism, they have been able to keep the prosecution on their toes in the art of Forensic, proper and thorough investigation and prosecution of accused persons.
