Fear of possible attack amid the unstoppable #EndSARS protests, the Nigerian Correctional Service couldn't take alleged kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, alias Evans, and his compliances, before the Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja, where their trial was scheduled to continue before Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo.
Recall that Evans and his alleged accomplices are facing two separate charges of kidnapping and murder before Justice Taiwo in which two charges were listed as number 10 and 12 in the court's cause list for Wednesday.
But neither the prosecution nor the defence came to court in which it could be due to the protest.
On enquiry from the court registrar, it was reported that the two cases would not go on as the prisons had communicated to the court that they would not bring the defendants to court, due to the unrest in the city occasioned by the widespread #EndSARS protest.
The Court Register noted that, "They are afraid of hijack by protesters"
The Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions also confirmed the development.
