Another shocking twist has emerged in the ongoing saga of notorious richest kidnapper, Chukwudumeje Onwuamadike aka Evans.
Donatus Duru, the pharmacist whose escape from detention led to the arrest of the suspect, has disclosed that the insider who gave him away has now been released by the Lagos state police command.
Also, Duru revealed that up till now, no police security had been provided for him.
According to reports, the victim made his comments while speaking on AIT’s ‘Focus Nigeria’ programme.
While on the show, Duru was asked to confirm the report that the suspect had been released, and he replied: “Yes, he has been released.
“He called one of my workers yesterday; that was how I confirmed he had been released.
“Since I escaped, I have been in hiding.
“I have applied to the police for protection, but since then, nothing has been done.”
According to Duru, his escape was nothing short of miraculous, as the kidnappers were becoming impatient and had concluded plans to kill him at the ‘canal’.
He stated: “I overheard them talking with Emeka one day and he said: ‘You don’t want to kill him? Kill him; in fact, kill him.'”
“So that night one of them from Ebonyi State – from his dialect – brought me noodles and said I should eat so as to have strength to face the boys at the canal.”
According to Duru, Emeka had been his employee for five years.
After his arrest by the police, he made useful statements that led to the arrest of Evans and his gang members.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that inspector-general of police (IG) Ibrahim Idris has instructed detectives investigating the billionaire kidnapper Evans to begin x-raying his various bank accounts.
Evans, who keeps changing his narratives since his arrest, had earlier confessed that he had just one account.
