Update! Kidnap kingpin, Evans' father begs Nigerians to forgive his son and take him to T.B. Joshua for deliverance

Stephen Onwuamadike - the father of the recently arrested billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudi "Evans" Dumeme, has come out to beg Nigerians to forgive his son for all his terrible crimes and also take him to Church for deliverance. In a newly released interview with Channels TV, he said;

"I'm still pleading to Nigerians, everybody he offended that they should forgive him. Life is very very important. Once they have life, there is hope. I have said it earlier, let them take him to T.B Joshua. I was in T.B Joshua in 2012, he said that if you see any criminal, that you should bring that person, so that when he gets his deliverance. He will know himself. It is something inside him that is messing up, not that person. I was telling God to forgive him. It's a very big shame to me hearing this name.

The woman pictured in the middle, was arrested after she accidentally injured six people including three children when her car (bottom right) careered out of control in a field full of hundreds of Muslims who had been celebrating the end of Ramadan.

Bystanders(left), including a man with a bleeding shoulder,(top right) fled in horror as the vehicle sped around a field packed with 300 to 400 people who had celebrated Eid at nearby Newcastle Central Mosque.

Two children and one adult remain in intensive care after the incident at Westgate Community College.

Witnesses said the driver, a 42-year-old Muslim woman, had got into her car on a grass verge at 9.14am after attending prayers when she 'pressed the gas rather than the break' and sped into the crowds.

The woman was arrested although police said the incident is not terror related. It comes just a week after suspected terrorist Darren Osborne, 47, deliberately drove into worshippers outside Finsbury Park Mosque in London.

Witness Uman Nyanzi said: 'It was a complete freak accident. She was praying with us just before this all happened. She was in the car and she was speaking to someone literally just seconds before the accident. To me it looked like she pressed the gas instead of the brake and she lost control.

The car started spinning. It was quite unbelievable. Someone had to jump in the car and pull the handbrake up to make it stop.

The first person it knocked was a little boy and he was bleeding really heavily from his shoulder. His mother was hysterical and very distressed.'

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde,has explained why she does not have friends in Nollywood. Read her response below...
“Most of my friends are friends I have had forever. I am a very loyal person. I try to keep a very small group of friends. It is not that I don’t make new friends, but I call them acquaintances. When you say friends, they are people I have known for a long time,since I was a child,” she said, poker faced: “Everybody is my colleague. I don’t have very close friends in the industry,” he added.

When asked why, she explained: “We don’t live around each other to start with. I live very far away from so many people. Secondly,I am not too much of a party person. We probably won’t see often. I am also not very good at visiting people, so, we probably won’t have that kind of bond.”

Evans In- laws Cry Out: ‘He Charmed Our Sister’

An interaction with Mr. Chukwuemeka Okoye, brother-in-law of the suspected notorious kidnapper, Mr Chidumeme Onwuamadike, a.k.a Evans, in the sleepy village of Awo-Oraifite in Ekwusigo local government area of Anambra State, gave an impression of a family in abject poverty. Chukwuemeka told Sunday Vanguard that his parents had 13 children, saying all of them had to struggle to make ends meet by engaging in menial jobs. It was, therefore, not surprising that Uchenna, Evans’ wife and the last of the 13 children, had to get married very early so as to leave the poor environment.

Locating the home of the Okoyes in the village was difficult because one had expected that the house of the in-laws of a man who counted  money in millions, both in local and hard currency, while his alleged escapades lasted, should be among the best in the community. But this was not to be as the unfenced and shabbily looking bungalow, where the family lives stood conspicuously in the area.

However, Chukwuemeka’s family of six, along with the unmarried elder sister of Evans’ wife, were found living in the house built in the village by one of his brothers residing in South Africa. To express how detached the wife of the suspected kidnapper is from the family, Chukwuemeka, a peasant farmer and construction site labourer, said his sister had not visited home since she got married in 2006. According to him, he returned from the North some years ago where he was an apprentice following the disturbances in many cities in that part of the country.

While at home, and because of lack of support, he learnt to be a mechanic, but had to abandon the job when he had a fracture while lifting a car engine. The encounter with Chukwuemeka began earlier after he returned with a rickety motorcycle, as enquiries were being made about the family, with a bunch of cassava sticks tied behind it. He welcomed the visitor and told the story of his family.

He said: “Our late father was already bedridden when Evans married Uchenna, our sister. My sister knew how difficult it was for the family and how sick our father was, but, after her marriage, no member of the family set eyes or heard from her up till now. For the eight years that our father was sick before he died in 2014 , Uchenna neither visited nor sent anybody to know how the family was coping. Sometimes I say to myself that it is possible that Evans charmed my sister because this was a girl that was very caring and homely. For her to abandon the family did not look normal to me.

“During the burial of our father, it was her father in-law, Mr. Stephen Onwuamadike, that came with his relations and could not even fulfill the conditions required during such situation in Igbo land.      Uchenna and her husband, Evans, did not come to the village for the burial.

“For some years now, our mother has been down with diabetes and one of my brothers living in the North had to take her to keep close watch on her. She would have preferred staying at home, but having seen that it would be extremely difficult for me to manage the sickness due to lack of financial resources, she agreed to go to the North.

“My sister and her husband have not been communicating with us and we don’t even know where they live. There was a time someone said they were living abroad. I am, therefore, shocked to hear that Uchenna’s husband is a  suspected kidnapper and that he had made so much money.

“My sister that I knew would have escaped from his house if she found out that the man she married is a kidnapper and that is why I say that everything is not normal with her. I had not even left this village for apprentice in the North when she got married and I am now married with four children and my sister does not know whether I am alive or not. It is even possible that I might not recognize her if I see her, not to talk of knowing her children. My wife here (pointing at her where she was seated and listening) does not know about her because we have never discussed anything about Uchenna. I am also surprised to hear that she has five children.

“My elder brother once told me that he communicated with her and there is no way I could know their present predicament because I do not watch television, neither do I have a mobile phone that can be used for browsing.  I cannot even identify my brother in-law, Evans, if we meet anywhere because the last time I set eyes on him was the day she came here and took my sister away 11 years ago.”

Chukwuemeka, however, pleaded with government to give his sister and her husband a second chance, believing that they would turn a new leaf, having seen where crime landed them.

Evans’ wife’s cousin, Reverend Emmanuel Okoye, a priest of the Anglican Church,  corroborated Chukwuemeka’s story, saying they did not know much about Uchenna because she had not been communicating with the family, adding that he only knew about their present predicament from the internet.

He said: “We were all living in that house (pointing at the bungalow), but as the family became larger, coupled with frequent family squabbles, we left the house because it was built by their father. I have not asked her immediate family about what I saw on the internet concerning her and husband because we have not been relating as we should.”

Mrs. Ngozi Nwaka, a petty trader, who said she knew Uchenna when she was at Awo Primary School, Oraifite, close to the Okoye family home, expressed surprise when her name was mentioned due to the fact that she had not heard or seen her since she got married. Though Mrs. Nwaka said she had heard about Evans the kidnapper as he was regularly shown on television, she never associated him with Uchenna because the couple had not been visiting Oraifite.

She told Sunday Vanguard that Uchenna was an average pupil in her class, although she was not contemplating going to secondary school because the parents were poor, adding that she was among the first set of her age mates to get married.

Many of the villagers told Sunday Vanguard they were not aware that, Evans’ wife hailed from the area. Although some of the people said they had read about Evans, who was described as the most notorious kidnapper in the country, it was a surprise to them that he was married to their  kinswoman.
A commercial motorcycle operator, Mr. Francis Odinuko -recalled how a suspected kidnapper from Ifite-Oraifite, Mr. Olisagbo Ifedike, a.k.a Ofe Akwu, attracted so much attention in the area during the administration of former Governor Peter Obi, who led security operatives to demolish two magnificent buildings belonging to Ofe Akwu on September 5, 2012, adding that until that demolition, most people thought Ofe Akwu was a businessman.

Odinujo said that Evans’ in-laws must count themselves lucky that he did not build any house in their compound because such a house would have been demolished in line with the Anambra government policy. Odunuko said he went to Umudim, Nnewi when the news of Evans broke, not knowing that his wife is from his home town, Awo-Oraifite.

He urged government not to take those begging for leniency for Evans serious, arguing that kidnappers are wicked people who must pay for their crime.

“Not minding that the wife is from my town, Evans should face the music because of the suffering he inflicted on many families and innocent people who he denied freedom,” the commercial motorcycle operator said. He also suggested that the monies recovered from Evans should be used to take care of those who suffered in his hands at various times.

Update! Pharmacist Accused Of 'Selling' His Boss To Evans Released

                                             Emeka Egbulugha and Chief Donatus Dunu
I have passed through the valley of death”.Those were the words, depicting a high sense of lamentation,from Emeka Egbulugha, 33, the pharmacist working with Maydon Pharmaceutical Company in Ilupeju, Lagos, whose boss, Chief Donatus Dunu, was abducted and kept in captivity for over 90 days, at the Igando area of the state.
Chief Donatus Dunu, regained his freedom miraculously. Although, even after he had paid a ransom of N150m, Evans and his boys did not allow Dunu go. He reportedly escaped just few hours to the time slated by his abductors to kill him.

After his escape, Chief Dunu gave a vivid account of his sordid experiences while in captivity, to the police. Shockingly, he named some of his staff, allegedly led by Emeka, as the mastermind of the kidnap.

The suspects were subsequently rounded up and detained by the anti-kidnap unit of the police. Incidentally, just few days after the kingpin of the dreaded kidnap gang was arrested, Emeka and two other staff of the company, were brought before the gang for identification. Surprisingly, both Evans and other members of his gang denied knowing Emeka or any staff of the pharmaceutical company. This led to their being granted bail by the court pending when police will conclude their investigations. The search for Emeka and his colleagues was not an easy one; but it became rewarding as he opened up after an accidental encounter. Excerpts;

“My name is Emeka Godson Egbulugha. I graduated from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Enugu State, Nigeria. I am a Pharmacist by profession. I got employed by Maydon Pharmaceuticals Limited in 2013, as a Medical Representative. In 2014, Chief Donatus Dunu, the Chief Executive Officer of Company accused his then Superintendent Pharmacist of embezzlement of fund. The Pharmacist later filed a suit against Chief Dunu and the Company in court which is still pending. Following my performance in the same year, he promoted me to the post of a Superintendent Pharmacist. In the course of work,

I combined the job of a Superintendent Pharmacist with that of a Medical Representative in order to please him. “On February 14, 2017, our CEO, Chief Dunu was kidnapped and the senior staff heard of it on February 15, 2017. At that point, we all started fasting and praying for him to be released and I personally went to Church to pray for him and the church at large also prayed for his release. To my greatest surprise, on May 12, 2017, I was at the University of Lagos for a supply when Mr. Gbenga (The Human Resources Manager) of Maydon Pharmaceutical called me and asked where I was, I told him that I was at Unilag Pharmacy. He asked me if I was coming to the office immediately and I told him that I needed to go to Ikeja (Mother & Child Hospital) for another supply before returning to the office.

“When I finished the supply, I rushed back to my office and within a few minutes, some policemen and women came into my office and asked me if I was Emeka, I said yes. They asked me what my duty was in the company and I told them that I am the Superintendent Pharmacist; they said yes, that I was the one they were looking for.

They handcuffed and took me to Ilupeju Police Station where I was beaten up and accused of kidnapping my boss. They told me that while my boss was in captivity, he heard my voice calling the person in charge of warehouse to load goods worth N7million Naira. Within the space of 45 minutes, the staff in charge of Warehouse were brought inside the cell at Ilupeju Police Station, and later, they took us to Anti-kidnapping & Anti-Cultism Office at Surulere, Lagos. “On May 13, 2017, the policemen started their investigation. They took me and the staff in-charge of Warehouse in handcuffs to our houses for a search. At my house, they took my mobile phone sim cards, laptop and cheque books for further investigation. Three weeks after our detention, the policemen went to the warehouse with the person in charge of the warehouse in company of Chief Dunu’s elder brother, Mr. Anslem Dunu, the Chief Accountant, the Director of Business and Development and Assistant Warehouse keeper, and they found out that his claim of looting his warehouse was not true. His goods were intact. Some goods were even surplus.

“After the stocktaking, Chief Dunu told the police that he had additional statement to make. It was at this time, that Chief Dunu claimed he saw me in the place where he was kept in captivity by the kidnappers. Whilst in detention, the warehouse keeper and I prayed and fasted daily for Almighty God to vindicate us from this false accusation and character assassination.

“On May 19, 2017, the Policemen took us to Yaba Magistrate Court to obtain a detention order from the court pending for further investigation. The court asked them to return on June 6, 2017, to inform the court of the status of their investigation. On that date, the police asked for three additional weeks to detain us but our lawyers opposed the application and applied for our bail. The court adjourned to June 16, 2017 for ruling on our bail application.

“To the glory of God, on June 10, 2017, the police apprehended Evans and his gang members and paraded them to the public on Sunday, June 11, 2017, at the Police Command, Ikeja. On Wednesday, June 14, 2017, the three of us detained at Anti-Kidnapping, Surulere, for conspiring with Evans and his gang to kidnap Chief Dunu, were taken to the Police Command, Ikeja (SARS office), before Evans and members of his gang for an identification parade. In our presence, the policemen asked Evans and his cohorts if they know any of us. They all said that they have never seen us before. In a bid to nail me in particular, they asked Evans to point at the pharmacist that gave him the information about Chief Donatus Dunu and he said, none of us gave him information, that he had not seen any of us before.

The Police asked Evans’ second in command in-charge of where they kept Chief Donatus Dunu to point at the pharmacist that do come there to make calls, and he said that he has not seen any of us before. The police officer told him that one of us said that we know him and he said, if any of knows him, he should talk and tell him where the person knew him from and where. “After this face-to-face identification, we were asked to go and were taken back to detention at Surulere. On June 16, 2017, we went back to court and our lawyers informed the court about what happened after the hearing of June 6, 2017, but the lawyer who represented the police prosecutor could not confirm if, indeed, we were paraded before Evans and his gang members. The court then adjourned the matter to June 20, 2017. On that date, the court, after listening to the Police lawyer and our lawyers, granted us police bail, pending conclusion of police investigation. ’This was after 40 days of detention.

“I must state that I am still in shock as to how Chief Dunu decided to level such weighty allegations against me. Since I joined his company until the date of his kidnap, I have never had any issues with him. I have never had any case against anybody even throughout my University days, let alone kidnapping my boss,” he concluded. The police are still continuing their investigations in this unfolding Evans saga.

Update! Nigerian Islamic extremist, Michael Adebolajo now regarded as Britain's most dangerous prisoner

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
Michael Adebolajo, a Nigerian Islamic extremist who murdered British soldier  Fusilier Lee Rigley in London, is now regarded as the most dangerous prisoner in the British penal system, officials say.

The 31-year-old who is being jailed at the HMP Frankland in County Durham, a Category A prison, was described by a prison officer as “violent, unpredictable and a major danger to other prisoners”.

According to Prison sources, the real threat he poses is his ability to radicalise other inmates as Dozens of prisoners are said to have fallen for Adebolajo’s twisted version of Islam and have vowed to become Jihadis when they are eventually freed.

It's also understood that even non-Muslim prisoners are said to have converted to Islam and sworn an allegiance to Islamic State after being radicalised by the murderer.

One prison official said: “Adebolajo spends most of his waking hours preaching his distorted form of Islam to anyone who will listen. He sees every inmate as a potential Islamic State soldier whether they are Muslims or not.

"He has a big personality and is very charismatic and some of the more vulnerable prisoners will fall under his spell. He is a very dangerous individual.”

The source said Adebolajo has taken up the role upon himself to recruit as many Jihadis as possible for the remainder of his life and has been given “special category” status because of the danger he represents.

The shocking details of the threat posed by one of the UK’s most notorious killers emerged just weeks after 33 people were killed and more than 100 injured in terrorist attacks in Manchester and London.

The source added: “If he is suspected of trying to radicalise other inmates we step in and move him.

"But even in prison Adebolajo cannot be watched all the time. We don’t have the staff or the resources.”

The report also revealed that keeping the terrorist killer confined in HMP Frankland, one of Britain’s most notorious prisons cost the taxpayer an estimated £1500 a week or £78,000 a year.

Adebolajo and his accomplice Michael Adebowale hacked 25-year-old  Fusilier Lee Rigby near his barracks in Woolwich Barracks, South East London in 2013.  The two terrorists mowed him down in a car before hacking him with knives and a cleaver.

The men dragged the soldier’s body into the road and told passers-by that they had killed a soldier to avenge the killing of Muslims by the British armed forces.

Adebolajo and Adebowale remained at the scene until police arrived and arrested them.

They both men received life sentences. Adebolajo was given a whole-life order excluding the possibility of parole, and Adebowale, was given a minimum term of 45 years in prison.

Update! Evans’ wife, kids change name, and acquire Ghanaian passports (photo)

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
A breakthrough by detectives has brought a fresh twist to the unfurling saga of captured Nigeria’s billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, alias Evans.
Latest findings of investigations into the robbery/kidnap kingpin’s crime-ridden life suggest that Evans and his entire family hold dual citizenship of both Nigeria and Ghana, which he made his second home and to which, he normally escaped to hide from the arms of the law, whenever the heat was turned on after his many dare-devil operations.

 Searchlight on the crime baron by detectives unearthed four Ghanaian passports belonging to him, his wife and two of their children.
Sleuths waddling through documents found during a search that the man identified by a Nigerian passport (No.A0500083) as Onwuamadike Chukwudumeme Somto, 37, is the same person as Asare Nelson, 39, according to Ghanaian passport (No.G0456327).
His wife, known as Uchenna Precious Onwuamadike to Nigerians, is Precious Asare by her Ghanaian passport.
The Accra Passport Office of Ghana Immigration Service issued the couple’s Ghanaian passports and those of their two children, Sussan and Emmanuel Asare.

The big question is: How did the family procure the foreign passports?
Saturday Sun learnt that although the issuance of Ghanaian passport is also porous and susceptible to corruption and touting like Nigeria’s, the strict enforcement of criminal justice system in the West African country discourages many Ghanaians and Immigration officials from indulging in the practice. Evans probably acquired the passport for himself and his family this dubious way. Paying GHc1000 (about N85, 000 by the current exchange rate) per passport would be no big deal for a man like the notorious criminal, who rakes in $1m from a single kidnap operation.

The smart crook that he is, Evans, in choosing nomenclatures avoided the generic day names––such as Kofi, Kojo, Kwabena Kwesi or Kwame, which are common to some nationals of Cote D’Ivoire and Togo and could deny the family the much prized Caanadian visa that he sought. Instead, he opted for Asare, an Akan name common to Southwestern part of Ghana, which, therefore, could raise no suspicion as to the genuineness of his family’s Ghanaian roots. With the name he could pass for an Ashanti, Akyem or a Fante.

 The next big question borders on the role of his wife.

Mrs. Evans has fervently denied having any knowledge of her husband’s nefarious activities. The 31-year-old earlier in a telephone conversation with a Nigerian newspaper denied having any inkling of her husband’s kidnapping business, insisting that Evans dealt in spare parts and haulage business and that the reason for their relocation to Ghana was for their children to have good education.
But, her assertions fell flat in the face of fresh and emerging facts, giving the public a portrait of her as a consummate liar, after her cameo weepy appearance on social media with her children.
It also confirmed both husband and wife as a “Bony and Clyde” couple.
For instance, her passport and those of her two children were issued in 2010, three years before her husband got his. For a woman who claimed to be oblivious of her husband’s activities, she had no qualms swapping her Nigerian identity for Precious Asare, travelling with the Ghanaian passport in preparation to migrate to Canada with a purported Ghanaian identity.
In retrospect, observers note, the family’s choice of Ghana as sanctuary made sense and easily connects the dots, as it offers greater possibility of easily transiting to other countries and avoiding any of Nigeria’s ports, where the head could easily be apprehended.
Recall that after a 2013 kidnap operation in Benin City, that turned the heat against him, Evans ceased flying through Nigerian airports. All his subsequent trips by flight were made using his Ghanaian passports and through Ghana’s airport.
Also, adopting Ghana as second home eases the possibility of securing visa to Canada, which appears to be their choice destination. Canada’s High Commission in Accra issues visa for a host of West African countries including Nigeria. Considering that they eventually got the Canadian visas, it is easy to conclude that they would have emigrated to the North American country, a security source said.

Update! Kidnapper Evans was once arrested in 2006 and freed


Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...A senior police officer, who arrested kidnap kingpin, Chukwudi Onuamadike, aka Evans, and members of his gang in 2006, shares the encounter with Gbenga Adeniji

How did you meet Evans?

There was a time in 2006 that a gang of robbers attacked a commercial bank in Lagos and went somewhere around the National Arts Theatre, Iganmu, to share the loot. While sharing the loot, the robbers had a disagreement and shot one another. Seven members of the gang died instantly. The then Divisional Police Officer of Iponri Police Station, Yahaya Bello, now a deputy commissioner of police, said there was a serious incident involving some persons who shot at one another. He said about three of them had been arrested.

What happened thereafter?

One of the members of the gang arrested then was Chukwudi Onuamadike, popularly known as Evans. If you look at his chest, I cannot remember whether it is the right or left side, there is a scar. It was as a result of the gunshot from his gang members that day. He bled and there was no way he could run away before the police came. The case was transferred to the Lagos State Anti-Robbery Squad. We investigated and discovered that they were armed robbers. Evans led the team. We also went to Mbidi Police Station, Imo State, to carry out an investigation on them. We were able to arrest two other members of the gang. We then had five of them in police custody.

Were you able to prosecute him?

There was a policewoman at the Band Section of the Police College, Lagos. She was known as Tina, a Superintendent of Police. She insisted that we should drop the case and that Onuamadike (Evans) was her brother. But when she was unable to achieve her aim, she travelled to Imo State. Not long after, we got a message from the Imo State Police Command that they had been searching for Evans and asked us to transfer the case to them so they could continue from where we stopped. Since that time, we did not hear anything. We heard he was later released there.

How did you know that he was the notorious kidnap kingpin arrested by the police not long ago?

I saw his pictures. I know the man we arrested alongside members of his gang in 2006. But one thing was that he was not bearing the alias, Evans, at the time. We identified him only as Chukwudi. Some of the persons we worked together on the case also called me to draw my attention to the fact that he was the one arrested.

Do you know if he was married at the time he was arrested for robbery?

I cannot say. You know that many criminals would be unwilling to share that part except we investigate.

Was Evans the only one released or other members were also set free then?

He couldn’t have been the only person released. The request was that we should transfer the case to them. We sent him and two members of his gang to the command. There is a hotel in Okota area where they used to meet to share their loot. The owner of the hotel was their friend. There was a time they robbed three banks in Alaba International Market in 2005. They also looted shops there. One of the owners of the shop complained to the police and we carried out an investigation. We discovered that some of the items stolen in the man’s shop were digital cameras. We traced the cameras to the hotel and into the office of the hotel owner. It was then that ‘big men’ started calling from everywhere that we should drop the charges against them. The owner of the hotel was later killed by the robbers, following a disagreement. His body was dumped by the roadside in one of the states in the East sometime ago.

What potential threat do you think Evans can constitute to the society if he finds his way out again?

He can form a terrorist group being a hardened criminal. We are talking about a man that would not release his victims until his exact ransom was paid.

How best do you think his case can be handled?

The best way to handle his case is for the police to do their work. They should do a proper investigation. If it will take four months to investigate him, they should do so. He has links in South Africa, Ghana, etc. I know him. Bank robbery and hijacking of bullion vans is easy for him and his gang members. He didn’t hesitate to shoot any member of his gang suspected of foul play.

But in his reported pleas, he gave a picture of being non-violent?

Forget about that. It is expected. No criminal would say he ever killed anybody, except after a thorough investigation has nailed him or her.

Why do you think he embraced kidnapping since you noted that he probably started as an armed robber?

I really cannot say because I have not seen him since we took him and his other members to Imo State. I think he only tried to adopt another criminal act he believed would fetch him more money. It is all about greed. He wanted more and more. He kept amassing wealth because he wanted to show off.
