How Lagos Transport Mogul Pays Me Not to Kidnap Him – Kidnap Kingpin, Evans
Arrested kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeje Onwuamadike alias Evans has confessed to police detectives how he once threatened the owner of a Transport company in Lagos into paying him a huge sum in foreign currency so that he and his gang will not kidnap him.
Evans disclosed that he originally demanded $1 million from the businessman but ended up settling for a lesser sum.
The billionaire kidnapper who was arrested last week in Lagos, said the businessman who is from the South East made the payment in 2013 after which he stopped threatening the transport magnate and his family.
According to a police source, Evans also confessed how he pays 10% of any money he collects as ransom to a certain witch doctor in Nnewi who prepares charms for him.
“He (Evans) also said that the native doctor who prepared charms for him is a traditional ruler and that he usually collected 10percent of the money generated,” the source said.
“Evans pleaded that Eze (native doctor/monarch) should not be arrested. He said whenever they went for an operation without telling the juju man, he always knew and would confront him. He said that the native doctor most times knew he was planning something and would tell him to stay away if he foresaw danger.
“He also said he heard of the kidnap of Ikenga Nnewi but that he was not responsible for it. He said that he knew something bad would happen the week he was arrested but he didn’t know the exact thing.
“He said he was planning to travel abroad because he knew police were looking for him. Evans said he was able to evade arrest over the years because the charms his native doctor prepared made him invincible to those who wanted to hurt him,” the source added.
Meanwhile, The Nation is reporting that Evans is beginning to adapt to life in the police cell as he now smiles and jokes with his cell mates and police interrogators.
The newspaper stated that he has also started eating. The kidnapper had reportedly rejected food since he was arrested.
