A State High Court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square, on Lagos Island, on Wednesday, ordered kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, popularly known as Evans, to refund the sum of €233,000 ransom he coercively collected from one of his victims, Donatus Dunu.
Justice Olukayode Ogunjobi also ordered the convicted kidnapper to pay N50 million as general damages in favour of the claimant.
Dunu was abducted on February 14, 2017 for ransom and held hostage, before he managed to escape from captivity
Upon his escape, he alleged that the defendant collected the sum of €233,000 as ransom prior to his escape from abduction.
The court however refused the claim for prejudgment interest of 40 percent per annum on the €233,000.
