Chukwudubem Onwuamadike known as Evans, was arrested at his Magodo residence in Lagos on Saturday..

The Anambra state indigene who is also a billionaire, is alleged to be the richest kidnapping kingpin.

The Inspector-General of Police’s Intelligence Response Team (IRT) led by ACP Abba Kyari, in a statement on Saturday said:

“IRT headquarters in Abuja is celebrating the arrest of the most wanted brilliant and notorious high profile kidnapper in Nigeria. He has collected several billions of Naira as ransom in the last seven years as the kingpin of kidnappers. He was arrested at about 1.00p.m on Saturday in his residence in Magodo Estate, Lagos.” 

Evans was said to have masterminded kidnapping operations in Anambra, Edo and  Lagos, with Lagos placing a 30 Million Naira bounty on him.

The police had previously traced the wanted kidnapper to his hideout in the Igando area of Lagos but he escaped before they arrived, abandoning a catchment of arms.

It was gathered that the operatives got intelligence Evans was hiding in his Magodo mansion where he was surrounded.

The suspect was said to have run to the roof of the house for emergency exit but the policemen caught up with him.

On how the suspect was arrested, the source: “Someone called and gave information on his whereabouts. When we got there, he hid inside the roof of the house. He could not withstand the pressure on him from the police.

“While Vampire was the most deadly kidnapper in the history of Nigeria and was caught some months ago during a gun battle, Evans remains the most brilliant, richest and crafty kidnapper in the country’s history.”

The recovered arms included four AK-47 riffles; two automatic pistols; four magazines loaded with 60 rounds of ammunitions each; 1,272 ammunition, 59 AK-47 ammunition; a police bullet-proof vest; a Toyota Hiace bus, suspected to be the gang’s operational vehicle, and a motorcycle.
