International Police (Interpol) was investigating Evans’ activities.
“When we paraded him (Evans) in Lagos, I told the public that the
arrest of Evans marked the beginning of the end for kidnapping.
“Since that day, the rate of kidnapping has seriously gone down and that shows that we were able to hit the right target.
for keeping him (in custody), we have been able to secure three months’
remand warrant from the Federal High Court, Abuja to enable us round
off our investigations.
“At present, the contacts and crimes he committed in other countries, including Ghana and South Africa, are of interest.
have series of complaints that border on murder, several kidnappings
and armed robberies against him and these are all capital offences that
are not bailable at the level of the police.
“They are not even ordinarily bailable in the courts.”
Jimoh said Evans’ detention was justifiable and there would be no
need to rush his case and make mistakes that would disappoint Nigerians.
