Evans is facing a seven-count charge of murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to kidnap and selling of firearms alongside Joseph Ikenna Emeka, 29, Chiemeka Arinze, 39, Udeme Frank Upong, 43.

Deal of the day

Since January 31 when his former lawyers Olukoy Ogungbeje and Chino Obiagwu SAN withdrew from the case following disagreements, Evans had been without a counsel.

Evans’ new lawyer is R.B.C Eke.

He is the suspect’s third lawyer since his arraignment in 2017.
