Notorious kidnap kingpin, Chukwudubem Onwuamadike, aka, Evans, who was arrested last Saturday at his Magodo Estate mansion, Lagos, has, amidst tears, cried out that he is being humiliated beyond limits, noting that he preferred dying than to continue living in pains.
The 36-year-old suspect, who is a native of Akamili in Umudim Quarters, Nnewi, Anambra State, said he knew the Police would not treat him fairly when he was caught, given the kind of atrocities he committed over the years
It was based on this assumption that he told Saturday Vanguard that he made up his mind to end his life the moment the Police gained access to his house.
He stated that the Police officer, who pursued him as he ran into his house when he sighted them at his gate, prevented him from completing his mission. Regretting that he was not able to end his life that moment, he looked at this reporter and asked:
”What am I living for? When I saw the policemen dash towards me I ran inside. I was not running to escape. I ran to see if I could end it before they could take me. But time was short. They followed me into the room.”
“I have seen it all, I want to die and have some rest. The only thing I want now is for the government to take care of my children, educate them and don’t allow them to become criminals.
I have begged Abba Kyari, to do this for me and he assured me that the Lagos State government would take them to an orphanage home where they would grow to become better persons in the society. I have been diagnosed with Colon Cancer and I wish could die now”.
Asked about the exact location of his wife and children, Evans said he sent them to Ghana four days before he was arrested, adding that they had planned to relocate to Canada, where he said he wanted his children to school.
He further disclosed that he gave his wife the sum of N20million for her upkeep, stating that he did not know their location at the moment since the day he was arrested.
Evans also revealed that his wife, who he has been married to for 11 years only knew he was a kidnapper a few days before his arrest.
