The Nigeria Police Force has in it's custody Olukoya Ogungbeje, who was arrested on Wednesday at the premises of the Federal High Court In Ikoyi, Lagos.

Olukoya Ogungbeje was the former lawyer of billionaire kidnapper, Evans but dropped the case earlier this year in June claiming it the case exposed him to threat.

Operatives from the State Criminal Investigation Department in Panti, Yaba, swooped on the lawyer as he made to park his car at the court’s car park.

Ogungbeje, who was billed to appear before the vacation judge, Justice Muslim Hassan, was immediately whisked off by the policemen.


“For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state categorically that we have fought a good fight this far despite repeated and sustained threats to my life and my defense lawyers, I dare say we have no regrets whatsoever having conducted the Criminal charges involving our client this far,” the lawyer said at the time.

Ogungbeje is famous for stepping in to defend controversial cases.
