The police have said that useful statements made by a younger sister of the notorious kidnap kingpin, Chukwudi Onuamadike aka Evans, led to his arrest. The sister was said to have been arrested after her number was identified as one of the contacts in Evans’ special SIM card. Evans’ childhood friend and four girlfriends were also picked up by the police and they all gave relevant information. This is just as operatives disclosed that Evans used three phones – two of which reportedly cost N2.4m and N2.6m respectively – with anti-tracking features to frustrate his arrest.
Our correspondent learned that he contacted families of his victims through the phones to demand ransoms, bearing in mind that the families could report to the police for tracking.
Reliable police sources also disclosed that the billionaire kidnapper had 126 registered SIM cards.
Evans, who also deals in drugs, was arrested on Saturday in one of his two mansions on Magodo Estate, Lagos, after seven years of high-profile abductions across the country, during which he collected millions of dollars in ransoms. He was paraded the following day amid jubilation at the Lagos Sate Police Command’s headquarters in Ikeja.
He was said to have bought three houses in Accra, Ghana, and wristwatches worth thousands of dollars from the proceeds of the crimes. The suspect, who dropped out of school at Junior Secondary School 2, had confessed to having once collected $1m ransom. Six of his gang members are Nwosu Chukwuma, aka Sudo, 42; Suoyo Paul aka Nwana, 42; Felix Chinemerem, 36; Chukwuemeka Bosah, 28; Uchechukwu Amadi and Ogechi Amadi. Uchechukwu and Ogechi are husband and wife.
Five AK-47 rifles, one AK-49 rifle, two English pistols, 59 AK-47 magazines with ammunition, 1,272 pieces of live ammunition of AK-47 (9mm) and five number plates were reportedly recovered from the suspects.
A police officer told PUNCH Metro on Thursday that apart from the weapons, three phones – a Thuraya, and two different Vertu phones – containing anti-tracking features were recovered from the 36-year-old native of the Nnewi North Local Government Area, Anambra State.
The officer said, “He has 11 phones. Two of them are special Virtu phones, which are very difficult to track. He also has a Thuraya, which is a satellite phone. It can be used anywhere, including in the bush, on the sea, and desert, where there is no GSM service. In Nigeria, we don’t have the capability to track Thuraya.
He said he bought the Virtu phones N4.6m. He used the three phones for his nefarious activities. We succeeded in tracking him through the other phones he has.”
A detective stated that a number of SIM cards used by Evans complicated the challenges posed by the sophisticated phones, adding that he bought the SIM cards registered from miscreants in Computer Village, Ikeja.
He said, “We studied and analysed 126 SIM cards before we caught him. We have about a two-page analysis of each of the numbers. He used 125 of those numbers to call his gang members only and used one to call his mother, wife and sister. He said he bought all the SIM cards already registered in Computer Village for N1,500 each.
“We picked his sister, his childhood friend with whom he attended primary school and four of his girlfriends. They gave us the information that led to his arrest. Evans confirmed that they didn’t know he was into kidnapping. Because of that, we granted them bail, while investigations continue.”

Another source said  that aside from a camp in New Igando, where Evans kept his victims, operatives had uncovered two other camps, which would soon be visited.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood,  said the suspect would soon be arraigned in court.

Wouldn't it be better to swiftly do justice as it demand for these bastards ! The publicity given this guy is becoming excessive and turning him into celebrity of a sort or a lifestyle to emulate or appraising life of crime .The police should just stop all these excessive detailing of what avd what he owes or the extravagant life style he's lived .This action may corrupt or influence those who are nursing or admiring life of crime to venture into acts of criminality ,since it's been painted or celebrated on the pages of our newspaper .In a society like ours where ordinarily people are so naive and ignorant of the consequences of crime ,all they could underline from every thing going viral about these dreadful killer is his lifestyle avd the money amassed during his nefarious activities .Nogeran police shoulld desist from mouthed over statement of every information obtained from this animals ,but instead tell the public the needful and part which discourages crime .

If we may recalled the aftermath of Pablo Escobar elimination did not in anyway achieve its objective to reduce or win the war on drugs ,instead it boom and keep booming right after Pablo was eliminated ,and that was bcaz most miscreants and admirer of his lifestyle delved into trading drugs ,haven seen the exotic ,exorbitant and luxurious life he lived .It however encouraged crime life is worth the pain .Pablo was celebrated by security agencies in Colombia ,this in return is encouraging the drug trade across the world .It's not worth penciling down on the pages of our newspaper the proceed of crime amassed.It isn't helping to desist those involved in this kidnapping world .I expect our police to censor some of the revealing before been passed to the media in order to safeguard our society .Nigeria is not a country which every information from a criminal can be directly reveal without been filtered avd that's because of our people mindset .We celebrate criminals ,corruption ,thieves and now kidnappers .This  is one reason why crime is gaining momentum in our society
