The Lagos State Police Command on Sunday paraded the billionaire kidnap kingpin, Chukwudi Onuamadike, alias Evans, in Lagos, alongside his alleged accomplices, Chukwuma Nwosu, 42, his third in command, Paul Suoyo, 42, Felix Chinemerem, 36, Ikenna Emeka, 28, Uchechukwu Amadi and Ogechi Amadi – the woman gang member who cooked for the members and their victims.
The police said the suspect, a native of Nnewi in Anambra State, was the leader of a highly organised kidnap-for-ransom syndicate that terrorised prominent Nigerians in Lagos and other parts of western, eastern, south-south, as well as northern Nigeria.
Police spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, CSP, said the arms and ammunition recovered from his gang include five AK-47 rifles, one AK-49 rifle, two double-barrel long, two English pistols, 59 AK-47 magazine with ammunition, 1,272 live ammunition of AK-47 (9mm) and five different vehicle plate numbers.
The Police also released photographs of the two houses owned in Lagos by Evans, who has been described as the richest and smartest kidnapper in Nigerian history.
The houses are located in Magodo Estate in Lagos. He had also confessed of having two four-bedroom duplexes in Accra, Ghana.
