Captured kidnap kingpin Chukwudubem Onwuamadike, a.k.a Evans has let the police into his mode of operation and has also revealed to security operatives two houses in Ejigbo and Igando areas of Lagos state, where he kept some of his victims for months only to be released after ransom is paid.

Evans revealed while taking policemen around his Igando hideout located at Green Street that it was at the apartment that he kept five persons including Chief James Uduji and Francis Umeh until they paid ransom for their release.

The kidnap kingpin who also took detectives to a bungalow at Orisunmbare by hospital junction in Jakande estate, Lagos where he had another hideout, revealed that he rented the Igando apartment in 2014 where he kept Francis Umeh for five months.

Evans also denied reports in some quarters that he owned a car called Fathom.

“The vehicles I owned were a Toyota Hilux and a Nissan pickup that I bought for N7m; Lexus GS460, which I bought for N22m; 2016 Range Rover, which cost me N55m, and Lexus GL47 that was bought for N9m,” he said.

Evans also noted that contrary to the claims of his father that he didn’t take care of him, he claimed he bought his dad a car and a bus and also gave him N3 million which he used for his pig and fish farming business.

“My father cannot say that I didn’t take care of him and my other siblings. I took good care of my father even when he didn’t take care of me. My father lived a very wayward life as a person,” he said.

Continuing, he added that; ‘‘He stopped paying my school fees which made me drop out of school. He went on to marry a second wife. As if that wasn’t enough, my father took a third wife and he married her as a 70-year-old man.

‘‘I was not happy with my father that was why I don’t go close to him but I made sure I provided all his needs. I bought him a car and a bus. They are in our compound and I also gave him N3 million which he used for his pig and fish farming business.

‘’I know I have done terrible things but I want to be forgiven. I also want to advise other criminals to turn a new leaf. The Nigeria Police is not what it used to be. They are far more advanced than they were. If they could arrest me, there is no criminal they can’t arrest,” Evans added.
