Joseph Emeka, a co-defendant in the suit filed against alleged kidnap kingpin Chukwudimeme Onwuamadike alias Evans, yesterday told an Ikeja Special Offences Court that he was losing his sight.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Emeka is facing trial alongside Onwuamadike, Chiemeka Arinze and Udeme Upong for attempted kidnap of Chief Vincent Obianodo, chairman of the Young Shall Grow Motors.
“I am not seeing clearly. I have told my lawyer, and my lawyer said he had spoken to you,” Emeka, the second defendant in the case, told the judge, Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo.
Following the submission, his counsel, Mr N.C. Onyejiaka, moved an exparte motion dated November 4.
Onyejiaka asked the court in the application to order the medical director of the Kirikiri Correctional Centre to provide a detailed medical report on Emeka’s vision.
The judge adjourned the case until November 29 for continuation of trial.
NAN reports that the four defendants face a seven-count charge of murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit kidnapping, attempt to kidnap, and sale and transfer of firearms over the alleged attempted kidnap of Obianodo.
