Contrary to media reports that he is filthily rich, notorious kidnap kingpin, Evans, has stated that he is not a billionaire.
In a chat with Tribune, the suspect revealed how much he actually had in his bank accounts.
He stated that it would be unwise to deposit the money gotten from his victims in the bank. He disclosed that he does not use his domiciliary account.
According to Evans, he used the proceeds of his criminal activities to buy houses in Nigeria and Ghana.
He stated: “I am not a billionaire.”
“I don’t have money in my bank accounts.
“I may have like N20,000 in some, but the kind of money you are expecting to hear are not in the accounts.
“I have [domiciliary account] but I don’t have money in it. It is only somebody who is a fool that would take such huge amount I collect to the bank.
“I don’t have any property in FESTAC. I only have the two Magodo properties in Lagos, and then another two in Accra.
“These are just the properties I have. However, some people have been saying I have houses all over the world. Some said I have house in South Africa, but I don’t.
“It was not only me who took all the money. I had people working for me and I gave them their shares.
“Instead of keeping the money in bank or somewhere else, I used it to buy houses. I have told the police how much I bought the houses.
“I have told them how much I spent in building the one in Ghana.”
Meanwhile, Voice of Ndigbo previously reported that the suspected billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike a.k.a. Evans has dragged the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and three others before the Federal High Court in Lagos over alleged illegal detention.
As respondents in the motion, he filed by his lawyers are the Nigeria Police Force, Commissioner of Police, Lagos state and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Lagos State Police Command.
