Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Ikeja Special Offences Court has on Monday sentenced Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, and his accomplice, Victor Aduba, to 21 years imprisonment for kidnapping one Sylvanus Hafia.
The suspects were accused of conspiring and kidnapping Sylvanus Ahanonu Hafia at about 5:30 pm on June 23, 2014, at Kara Street, Amuwo Odofin in Lagos.
After kidnapping the victim, they demanded a ransom of N2m.
However, they pleaded not guilty to the four charges.
The judge held that the sentence would serve as a deterrent to other aspiring kidnappers.
