Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, popularly known as Evans suspected billionaire kidnapper, created a scene at the Lagos State High Court on Monday when he told the presiding judge that he was not being treated well in the prison custody.

Evans who was wearing a torn green Tee shirt and a pair of shorts with barefoot refused to come down from the Black Maria vehicle which conveyed him and other suspects to the court.

This prompted the judge, Justice Adedayo Akintoye, to order the prison warders to bring him into the courtroom.

When he eventually came down, Evans was handcuffed into the courtroom and led to the dock.

While in the dock, he raised his hand and told the judge that he had something to say.

When he was allowed to speak, the suspected kidnapper told Justice Akintoye that he was not being treated well in prison.

He said, “I have an explanation to make. Since I have been in the maximum prison, they have been maltreating me; no visit, they don’t feed me well. I have an eye problem and I cannot see far”.
