- A source has said that the suspected kidnapper known as Evans revealed that whenever he and his gang went for an operation without telling the juju man he always knew
- The source disclosed that Evans said he was able to evade arrest over the years because the charms of his native doctor made him invincible to those who wanted to hurt him
- Evans however said that he was planning to travel abroad because he knew police were looking for him
Police have planned to inspect all detention camps operated by the suspected kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeje George Onwuamadike known as Evans, a source said.
This comes even as Evans confessed that the native doctor who prepared charms for him is a traditional ruler and that he usually collected 10 percent of the money generated.
The Nation reports that although Evans still agonizes about his condition in police cell, he finds time to smile and joke with his cell mates and interrogators.
NAIJ.com gathered that the native doctor most times knew he was planning something and would tell him to stay away if he foresaw danger.
The source said: “He collected a huge sum of dollars but not up to the $1million he demanded in order to stop threatening the man with kidnap.
“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 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.
“Evans claims that he never assaulted any of his kidnap victims. That he didn’t sleep with the women and never slapped any of the men.
‘’He said he only chained them and ensured their families paid the demanded amount.
“He has started laughing and feeling relaxed now, unlike before. He eats rice sold by one of the caterers at the station and drinks only bottled water.
‘’He insists that his wife knew what he was doing for a living and even used to collect ransom for him.”
Before his arrest, NAIJ.com had reported that the Police placed a N30 million bounty on the head of a wanted Evans.
The Lagos state commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, told newsmen on Tuesday, May 16, that a N30 million reward, awaits anyone who gives information that leads to his arrest.
