Suspected kidnap kingpin, Chukwudimeme Onwuamadike popularly known as Evans has said in court that he’s not a kidnapper, but a businessman.

In court on Tuesday Evans denied all claims of kidnapping leveled against him by the Lagos State Government, while insisting that he’s a businessman who deals in ornaments and Horlicks.

He claimed that his name is not Evans, neither does he have a nickname. According to him, he was forced to confess to being a kidnapper after police allegedly killed four people in his presence extrajudicially in an attempt to force him to confess.

He said he had never met his five co-defendants before being captured by the authorities, except on the day they were paraded as members of a kidnapping gang by the police at Area F Police Command in Ikeja, Lagos.

“I live at Fred Shoboyede Street, Magodo Phase II, Lagos. I am a businessman and I deal in ornaments and Horlicks. My lord, my name is not Evans and I don’t have a nickname,” he said.
Meanwhile, in January 2020 Evans revealed in court that he knows his victims’ worth from their looks.
