Chukwudubem Onwuamadike, billionaire kidnapper, aka Evans,
has explained why he did not operate in South-West states apart from
Lagos. He further stated that he never committed a crime in his home state, Anambra.
Evans also said he never committed any crime in his home state, Anambra but only collected ransom there.
He listed Lagos, Abia, Enugu, and Edo states as his main operational base.
Evans denied that he met any of his victims on social media, while
insisting that his wife, Uchenna did not collect ransom for him in any
He told New Telegraph, “Police tracking located me in Anambra State,
but it was not because I committed robbery or even kidnapped anyone
“If I kidnapped someone in Lagos, I sometime go to Anambra State to collect the ransom, just to avoid detention.”
When challenged that he once carried out simultaneous robbery
operations in Oyo State in 2010, where three banks were raided, he
denied, saying “No! I have never operated in any Yoruba state, let alone
“I have never operated there; Lagos is my state. I mostly operated from Lagos.
“Moreover, I also didn’t like operating in Yoruba states because I don’t know my way around there. I don’t know the terrains.
“It is not right to go where you don’t know, except you have someone that can lead you.
“There was never a time I said I got victims from Facebook or that my
wife used to collect ransom on my behalf. I did not also say there are
important personalities working with me in the East.”
