If feelers coming out of the State of Lagos are true, then a huge cloud has landed on the case of Chukwuduneme Onwuamadike a.k.a. Evans, Nigeria’s infamous billionaire kidnapper, thus fuelling speculations that he’s escaped, or dead.
It is not very clear whether Evans is alive or dead as efforts several media houses to reach him prove abortive as Police deny access to him with out any explanation, however, his family now fears but has been moved from the Lagos police command headquarters cell by about 30 heavily armed men at midnight few days ago to an undisclosed destination. But an unconfirmed information said he has transferred to Federal capital Abuja.
Indeed, in the last few days, a palpable silence seemed to have enshrouded the Evans phenomenon. Where is Evans? It is a question the police is not prepared to officially answer right now. A man who hitherto divulged the details of his criminal life to the public almost on a daily basis is suddenly no longer accessible to even the press corps.
The secrecy surrounding his whereabouts in the official quarters baffles those who have closely followed his story since his arrest.
But one thing is certain in this case, maybe the IG of police is interested in the case or the police fear he might escape from detention as stories are been spread that he is being feared by his fellow cell mates. He now controls about 25 cell mates and he may form another dangerous group in the cell.
