EVANS : I got gunscar after 2006 robbery, Police finds another soldier.

Arrested kidnap kingpin Chukwudumeje George

Onwuamadike (aka Evans) has confessed that

the gunshot scar on his shoulder came from the

injury he sustained during a 2006 bank robbery in


This is contrary to his earlier claim that he got

the injury during a fracas following a drug

business in South Africa in 2007.

Evans, who was confronted with a newspaper

interview that indicated the scar was as a result

of a gun duel between him and his gang

members at the National Theatre in Surulere,

Lagos Mainland, admitted that he lied earlier.

According to the suspect, he and his gang

members robbed a bank in 2006. While sharing

the loot, there was a disagreement, which led to

a fight.

He admitted that they started shooting

themselves, adding that many of the robbers

died. He was seriously injured and abandoned by

the others.

The kingpin also admitted that he was arrested

by the police, adding that he and two others

were transferred to the Imo State Police

Command, where they were released.

The officer in charge of the Inspector General of

Police’ (IGP) Intelligence Response Team (IRT),

Abba Kyari, an Assistant Commissioner of Police

(ACP), said: “Evans was confronted with the

interview on Sunday and he admitted that the

bullet wounds are from disagreement over

sharing of loot after bank robbery in Lagos in

members died while Evans survived with bullet


A Superintendent of Police with the Band section

The kingpin was quietly released inOwerri. Tina

is believed to be related to Evans’ mother.

The Nation gathered that the police were out to

fish out all those who participated in the 2006

release of Evans and two of his gang members.

They are to be prosecuted.

It was also learnt that the police have begun a

manhunt for another soldier said to be a member

of Evans’ gang.

The soldier whose identity is yet to be revealed,

it was gathered, was attached to one of the

Army formations in Lagos.

A source said the police had the soldier’s names

and pictures, adding that they would leave no

stone unturned in arresting him.

“He should have been arrested on Saturday night

but we believe he might have gone into hiding

after his colleague, Victor Chukwunonso, was

caught. That was why the police high command

did not want to release information on the arrest

of Chukwunonso because there are so many

others being investigated.

“But I know he would be caught. Our bosses will

simply approach army authorities with evidence

and request that he be handed over to the


“It is true that they have started looking for that

Tina woman and many other officers who were

serving at the Imo State Command at that time

that Evans was released. So many heads will roll

in this matter.”
