June 19, 2017 – Falana To Police: Do Not Kill Evans, Investigate His Banks For Money Laundering
Human Rights activist, Femi Falana (SAN) today reiterated his call for adequate police protection and fair trial for Kidnap kingpin Evans.
Falana faulted the police on the media trial of Evans, calling for thorough investigation on all the leads and persons mentioned by the suspect.
“The police in collusion with the media, usually violate the rights of the people by conducting media trial. Though some of these cases are sensitive, we must all ensure the suspect does not die in custody.
“He has named a lot of accomplices, including a traditional ruler/consultant. He has talked about a businessman, who paid him so that he and his family would not be kidnapped.
“The suspect has said he has three palatial mansions in Ghana. So, there is need for full investigation in this matter. His banks need to be investigated for money laundering and failure to disclose suspicious transactions.
“The investigation has to be extensive. The media must corporate with the police for Evans to be brought to trial. He should be kept alive to tell his story in court for the benefit of society.”
