Billionaire Kidnapper, Evans still in Police Custody
Contrary to a report in a leading national newspaper on Saturday, the Police said suspected kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeje George Onwuamadike alias Evans has not “vanished” from its custody.
Jimoh Moshood, spokesperson for the Nigeria Police Force asked Nigerians to ignore report that the kidnap kingpin has ‘vanished’ from custody as the accused has only been moved to a more secure detention facility.
Moshood, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CPS), said the suspect and his accomplices would be charged to court after conclusion of investigations
He said: “The media need to avoid stories that could create fear, tension or misrepresentation among the masses. Where did Evans vanish to? That headline was misleading. The suspect and his accomplices are very much in our custody.
“We are working hard to ensure that justice is served at the end of the day. There are certain information that are not for public consumption to avoid jeopardising investigation or even national security.
“Evans is with the police. His whereabouts is known but cannot be made public. We are appealing to Nigerians to remain calm and support the police to conclude its investigation.”
