Evans claimed that the lawsuit by a Lagos lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje against the police were an attempt by some people to put him in more trouble.

He said, “I have no hand in any case filed against the police and I did not speak with any lawyer or my father to fill a case on my behalf.

All I will say is that they should temper justice with mercy.”

The 36-year-old father of five said should the police release him, he would not leave detention because his kidnap victims would kill him. reports that Evans recently dragged the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris before the Federal High Court in Lagos over his alleged illegal detention.
