Evans Is Also into Crimes In South Africa – Fellow associates Arrested

Ongoing police investigation of
suspected kidnap kingpin,
Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, alias
Evans, has revealed that he was also
involved in crimes in South Africa, it was
gathered yesterday.
That is besides his alleged illegal procurement of a Ghanaian
passport that bears his passport photograph but a Ghanaian
Police spokesman, Mr. Moshood Jimoh, told The Nation that the
investigation has also led to the arrest of more associates of
Evans who were found to be probably wealthier and living
bigger than him.
Evans is spending his second month in police custody and is
expected to be formally charged within the next one month,
Jimoh said.
He said:”You may recall that a Federal High Court granted us
a three month remand warrant for Evans. We are just into the
second month now and before the expiration of the third month,
it is expected that we should be taking him to court.
“The little time is to ensure that we conduct a thorough and
detailed investigation.
“This is somebody that committed crimes across several states
and even went outside Nigeria.
“You may recall that he illegally acquired a Ghanaian passport
with a Ghanaian name but with his passport photograph.
“He was also fingered for involvement in other crimes in South
Africa and other places. So we need a little time to properly
round things up and ensure that he is properly prosecuted
because Nigerians will not be happy if we lose such a case in
court on the basis of technical matters.”
He said relations of former victims of Evans’ are among those
being detained by the police. They are suspected of giving
information about the former kidnap victims to Evans.
He advised the public to be security conscious at all times to
avoid falling prey to kidnappers.
His words: “He (Evans) did things with lots of such people
and we have lots of suspects who had collaborated with him in
one way or the other; we even have other prime suspects apart
from those that were arrested with him and paraded.
“In the course of this investigation we have other prime suspects
including people who broke away from Evans’ gang to start
their own gang – they left Evans to go and do a similar
(kidnapping) business.
“Some of the suspects we later picked after detectives’
interactions with Evans are even living larger than Evans.
“We are going to ensure that we don’t make things public until
we gather all our evidence towards securing a conviction in
“I won’t give you figures but they are many suspects; there are
a lot of accomplices, lots of former gang members and lots of
other people that have in one way or the other facilitated the
offences committed by Evans and others.
“There is a special group of criminal suspects that are referred
to as ‘catchers’; in criminal syndicates, they are the people that
identify targets and give information about innocent, law-abiding
people and more of such suspects are being rounded up.
“Part of our investigation reveals that Evans himself jogs
round the estate where he lives every morning and uses that
opportunity to assess information on those potential victims that
have what they describe as ‘kidnap value’.
“It was after his arrest that some of his surprised neighbours
realized that it was this man that used to jog around; that is
why security-consciousness necessitates that every citizen should
be alert and see things beyond their noses now.

“Sometimes, it is easy to jeopardise your security by being a
good Samaritan through acts like offering someone a lift in
your car because there are persons who can take advantage of
your kind or welcoming nature.
“All citizens equally need to know where potential help can
come from in security emergency situations like where police or
other security people are located, the right telephone numbers to
call and so on.
“The Inspector-General of Police is taking the battle to
criminals but maximum security is achieved through the alertness
of everybody in the interest of everybody and such attitude
goes a long way to prevent many people from becoming victims
of criminality.”
