Notorious kidnap superstar, Evans, arrested in Lagos

The Nigerian Police has arrested notorious kidnapper — Evans, whose real name is Chukwudubem Onwuamadike after several years of trailing him.

Evans, who had been on the wanted list of the Nigerian Police, was arrested in Lagos on Saturday by the IGP Intelligence Response Team (IRT) led by Abba Kyari, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), as he prepared to flee the country.

The suspect, who is the brain behind most of the high-profile kidnap cases in the nation, has for over four years been declared wanted in three states of Edo, Anambra and Lagos.

With his notoriety status, the IGP had to mobilise resources to back the IRT in making sure he was arrested.

Going by the police profile on him, Evans was touted to be the most brilliant, crafty and richest of his ilk, thus making him a dangerous kidnapper.

However, he was traced to Magodo in Lagos where he was finally arrested by ACP Kyari and his men from his mansion at about 1pm on Saturday.


Evans and his gang members were paraded in Lagos 12noon on Sunday (today) at the Command Headquarters in Lagos.
