In a fundamental rights enforcement suit he filed before the Lagos Federal High Court, Evans prayed for an order of the court, mandating the respondents to immediately charge him to court if there is any case against him in accordance with Sections 35 (1) (c) (3) (4) (5) (a) (b) and 36 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
He contends that his detention is illegal.
The three others he joined as respondents in the motion are the Nigeria Police Force, Commissioner of Police, Lagos State and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Lagos State Police Command.
The suit was instituted on his behalf by a Lagos-based lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje.
The alleged kidnapper alternatively asked the court to order the respondents to without any further delay release him unconditionally if they do not have any offence for which he should be charged to court.
