How The Billionaire Kidnapper Was Finally Arrested
Police operatives have given a detailed account of how the recently arrested billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudemeje George Onwuamadike, a.k.a Evans was arrested.
Evans met his Waterloo on Saturday when the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) apprehended him in his lavishly furnished home in highbrow Magodo Estate of Lagos State.
More so, it was gathered that the police N30million bounty placed on Evans for anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of Evans was a major boost leading to his successful arrest, Vanguard reports. Police sources also attributed the notorious kidnapper’s arrest to an informant residing in Magodo and intelligence reports that revealed identities of his three girlfriends.
After the Inspector-General of police deployed his Intelligence Response Team to track the notorious kingpin, they made huge progress from the documents recovered from his hideout in Igando, Lagos after the miraculous disappearance of his last victim. The documents reportedly aided them in identifying occupants of that apartment and opened an avalanche of information leading to Evans movement. That was how they discovered that he lives at Magodo area of Lagos State, while other members were also residing in Lagos, Rivers, Abuja, Edo and Anambara States.

It was gathered that the Inspector General of Police IRT’s Team Leader, Abba Kyari, who was tracking the location of Evans and his gang members had planned to round-up all the suspects together but the plans failed as the Kidnap Kingpin was always changing locations, making it difficult to get his exact location.
An anonymous source reveals that while Kyari was searching for Evans, and also mobilized some residents of Magodo Estate, with clear descriptions of Evans, his vehicles and the name of his security man, IGP, Ibrahim Idris, had also announced a bounty of N30 million on information that could lead to the kidnapper’s arrest.
This led to the rounding up of three women believed to be Evans girlfriends, and they were identified as Amaka, Ijeoma and Ngozi. The operatives were said to have discovered that Evans was very close to Amaka and he rented an apartment for her in the Okota area of Lagos State. Sources explained that Evans was fond of sleeping in Amaka’s house on a regular basis and they decided to use Amaka to lure him.
It was further gathered that Evans became suspicious that Amaka may have been picked by the police, and therefore avoided her as much as he could. However, one of the police informants in Magodo made a breakthrough as the IRT were banking on Amaka, and he called and informed the police that he has located Evans apartment. He also disclosed that Evans has not been seen around his house for a long time and he was believed to have moved out of his house.

He therefore moved away from his home and relocated to a hotel in Agidigingbi area of Ikeja, moved his wife and children to Ghana and was also trying to dispose some of his properties at the time he was arrested.
On the day he was arrested, it was gathered that Evans was unaware that operatives had located his apartment in Magodo, when he contacted Amaka on Saturday morning.
“He was said to have called her on the phone around 4:15 am without knowing that some policemen were with her and asked her to wait outside her compound to meet him. She reportedly joined him later at the spot and as soon as she got into the car, he attacked her, threatening to kill her for not informing him about the police presence in her house.
“Evans was said to have gotten angry and drove away with her in his Grand Cherokee SUV and they had an accident at Iyana-Ipaja area where he abandoned the vehicle, seized Amaka’s phone and asked her to go home.
“It was from there that he picked a cab to his residence at Magodo to pick some few things in preparation to travel out of the country. After then, we swooped in on him and arrested him inside his bedroom,” the police source revealed.
