The Lagos State High Court in Ikeja has found Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, guilty of conspiracy and kidnapping Donatus Duru, a businessman.
Evans and two co-defendants, Uchenna Amadi and Okuchuwkwu Nwachukwu, were found guilty by Justice Hakeem Oshodi on Friday.
The judge held that the prosecution had successfully proved the charge against the three convicts beyond a reasonable doubt.
He came to the conclusion that the evidence presented in court, particularly their video admissions, proved their guilt.
However, the court discharged and acquitted Ogechi Uchechukw and two former soldiers of the Nigerian Army, Chilaka Ifeanyi and Victor Aduba, for lack of sufficient evidence linking them to the crime.
