Chikwudubem Onwuamadike, aka Evans, the alleged kidnap kingpin arrested recently by the police has reportedly claimed his wife knew he was into crime.
The claim contradicts the wife’s, Uchenna Precious Onwuamadike, avowal about what she believed her husband does for a living. The wife, in a report by Vanguard, implied she didn’t know her husband made huge wealth from the proceeds of his criminal act. She claimed the largest money she ever received from him was N200,000. But the Nation quoted interrogators as saying Evans told them his “wife knew what he was doing for a living and even used to collect ransom for him.”
Moreover, the interrogators also said the suspect was gradually adapting to life in detention and unlike before, Evans now eats and laughs with his co-detainees.
“He has started laughing and feeling relaxed now, unlike before. He eats rice sold by one of the caterers at the station and drinks only bottled water”, the source stated.
Also, it was gathered from the investigation into Evans that he, in 2013, threatened a transport magnate with kidnap. He was said to have demanded $1millon from the transport magnate but eventually received less before giving the latter a breather.
