Rita Enemuru, Reporting

SUSPECTED socialite kidnapper, Mr. John Lyon Ewa and his gang leader, Emmanuel Angase have pleaded not guilty to the 14-count charges of kidnapping, armed robbery and criminal felony preferred against them.

Stonix News reports that the suspects were notorious for kidnap of high profiled bankers, businessmen and prominent Bayalsans.

They pleaded not guilty when they were arraigned by the Nigeria Police Force, Bayelsa State Command, before High Court 6 in Yenagoa on Wednesday.

The Prosecuting Counsel, Bayelsa State Director of Public Prosecution, Apulu Iyabosa, said the briefs of the case were served on the defendant counsel and prayed for a trial date.

The Counsel to the defendants, Francis Gbaionna, said he has not received the statement of charges from the prosecution lawyer.

He added that he has no objection to the application.

Ruling on the matter, the presiding Judge of the Court, Justice I. Eradiri, ordered the defendants to be remanded at the Okaka Correctional Centre.

He thereafter adjourned the case for hearing to the 5th and 21st of December, 2022.
