A Lagos state High Court at Tafawa Balewa Square on Tuesday ordered convicted billionaire kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, popularly known as Evans, to refund the sum of €233,000, ransom he coercively collected from one of his kidnap victims, Chief Donatus Dunu.
In addition, Justice Olukayode Ogunjobi ordered the convicted kidnapper to pay the sum of N50m as general damages in favour of the claimant.
Dunu, a pharmacist, was abducted on February 14, 2017, and held hostage with ransom collected from his family, before he managed to escape from captivity.
Dunu, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Maydon Pharmaceutical Company, later filed a civil suit, praying the court to order Evans to return to him the €233,000 paid in ransom.
He demanded N50m in general damages in addition.
