Even his lawyer should be arrested if he request such again. Did hushpuppy get plea?
Well, I think hush would’ve gotten more than the years given to him if he didn’t cooperate with the fbi. But fraud and kidnapping/murder are different things

Plea bargain is more like a legalized bribery and corruption , co-opted to help the rich, the famous and the politically connected to evade justice for their heinous crimes against the society, and should not be encouraged by the judiciary, especially the judges because anybody could become a victim of their criminal acts .
wadume caused the deaths of our committed officers on duty and some innocent civilians, yet spend only two years in prison, while the dead victims are gone forever, now another notorious kidnapper; Evans is now emboldened to seek to purchase his freedom in the name of plea bargain, what about his victims and the trauma he made them to experience ?
i wonder the type of nation that Nigerians aim to build and bequeath to their next generation, it's really scary.

You guys seem not to understand what a plea bargain entails. It could mean that he will disclose to the police his other accomplices who are still at large, his sponsors, and how he got access to guns and in return gets life imprisonment instead of the death penalty. However, the information obtained from him will help solve many security challenges in the country. Even Hushpuppy was granted a plea bargain to name his accomplices.

As far as I'm concerned his primary reason for asking for please bargain is so that he can escape the death sentence then negotiate a lighter offence.

And please stop comparing Evans with Hushpuppi, the offences they committed are of two very different classes, while Hushpuppi committed a financial misdemeanor Evans on the other hand is a first criminal who committed a capital offence (I'm pretty sure he has also committed murder of a victim before)

He should be sentenced to death by firing squad which should be televised live so everyone can see the ultimate punishment that awaits a kidnapper in Nigeria!

He should be used a a landmark case in Nigeria if we want to nip kidnapping in the bud before it takes root in the country

How does someone sentenced to death comes around for plea bargaining. Has he upturned the sentence at high court. Nigerian police and judiciary will never cease to amaze me.

Re: Convicted Billionaire Kidnapper Evans Opts For Plea Bargain by MomohMrMoore: 10:59am On May 18
Lol.. this man is still living while the kidnapping business industry he created is booming. He approached the court sor settlement? Settlement with what, with part of the ransom money he made?
All his kidnapped victims that he killed and created hundreds of orphans, widows, widowers, how will those ones approach for settlement. How will the dead victims approach court for settlement.
In Asian countries, this man would have been beheaded since and all the money recovered to the last penny.

He didn't commit murder. the kidnapper who committed murder Wadume has been freed and given a heroes welcome in Adamawa

11 years.
But your question triggered me to research and found out it’s almost the same for most Nigerian fraudsters in US prisons or even lower. They were all ranging from 5-11 years.

Hushpuppy cooperated with authorities hence, lower sentence. Plea bargain is part of the deals relating to those testifyinv against Donald Trump.

Hello everyone,

Workplace Bullying is a serious concern in the labour sector. A lot of employees in Nigeria do not even know how to identify this phenomenon.

A research is ongoing in this regard, kindly assist to fill this questionnaire so as to identify the ingredients of workplace Bullying and how it affects your mental health.

You just said the primary reason he opts for a plea bargain, now what do you think is the primary reason why a Government will consider accepting the plea bargain? Its simply to consider if the information they will get in return from him is worth it.
Re: Convicted Billionaire Kidnapper Evans Opts For Plea Bargain by Miramonica: 1:03pm On May 18
Plea bargain isn't bad. At least it will save all these lengthy court cases. Instead of getting maybe life imprisonment, he will get like 25 or 50years on each count he pleads guilty to and it will run concurrently.

Who is more dangerous, Evans that has kidnapped maybe hundreds of people or Nigerian politicians that have kidnapped and held 200 million Nigerians hostage with corruption induced abject poverty and hopelessness and have rendered 200million Nigerians to be in financial servitude to them ?

Even punch has bastardized the word 'billionaire'.

Billonaire is at least 1 billion dollars in cash or asset. That's more than 1 trillion naira.

Evans has been in prison for many years before Wadume, another notorious kidnapper was jailed for 2 years and he has been freed.

I don't support Evans but judicial bandits that gave Wadume only 2 years have given Evans audacity.

Evans was arrested in 2017 and has spent 7 years in jail. Wadume was arrested in 2019 and is now free.
Evans usually kills people after collecting ransom.
I know you may say they are both guilty of the same thing but it’s very simple…..a man who has killed 2 people and a man who has killed 200 are not the same even though they’re both classified as killers.

Something is wrong with you sir.
Go ad make your findings his confessions are available where he narrated how he buried people alive even after collecting millions of dollars from their families.
The IRT commissioner Abba kyari was the cop who hunted him down, he even tried to bribe him with 2m$ so he can leave him to continue kidnapping and killing people after taking their money…..there is no greater evil than that.
He is a dangerous evil demonic flesh eater and he should be nowhere near human beings.

Even the ones that do mass kidnapping in the north they know the unspoken rule which is to release your victim after you receive payment.
He had no regard for human life and any kidnapper who does that the government usually hunt them down like rabbits.
