Kidnap kingpin, Chukwudimeme Onwuamadike aka Evans, has been convicted alongside two others for conspiracy and kidnapping of a businessman, Donatus Duru.
The other two convicts are are Uche Amadi and Okwuchukwu Nwachukwu.
The three men were found guilty of a two-count charge by the Ikeja High Court in Lagos, presided over by Justice Hakeem Oshodi on Friday.
According to Justice Oshodi, the prosecution succeeded in proving the charge against the three convicts beyond reasonable doubt.
He, however, discharged and acquitted one Ogechi Uchechukw and two former soldiers, Chilaka Ifeanyi and Victor Aduba, saying the evidence against them was not sufficient enough.
Justice Oshodi is, however, yet to sentence the convicts as proceeds are still ongoing.
Evans is facing similar charges before Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo and Justice Adedayo Akintoye of the same court.
