Moving my camp to Igando from Jakande estate was a blunder- Evans

Like most notorious criminals before him, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, aka Evans, the billionaire kidnapper nabbed in Lagos recently by detectives, has not disappointed. He continues to regale the public with stories of his escapades.

In his latest tales, the mindless criminal expressed regret over the relocation of his camp from Jakande Estate to Igando because according to him, Jakande Estate was good for Business.

Evan while visiting his camp in both locations in the company of detectives, said he relocated from Jakande because people became suspicious over his activities around the vicinity.

“I only have three camps; one in Igando, another in Jakande and another one in Gowon Estate. The one in Jakande, I rented it for N750,000 a year, that was it in 2010. For the Igando house, I rented it for N1 million,” he said.

“I don’t go to the camps because I have my boys on the ground. They give me information on a daily basis.

“Jakande was the place was where I kept Udoji, a businessman. Five others were also kept there and I collected millions from them.

“I collected $1 million from Udoji. Emesbose paid $300,000 while another person I can’t remember paid $250,000.

“I kept just two victims in Igando: Chief Umeh and Chief Donatus Duru who escaped from the house. We collected 23 million euros from the family. Actually, we were demanding for 300 million euros. We were expecting the balance but since the family did not bring it, I told my boys to release him, but they kept holding him. I was sad when my boys called that Duru escaped from our camp.

“Jakande was a good location for business, but I had to leave that place as soon as I noticed that people were becoming suspicious. I moved to Igando after Jakande. If I had known, I would have been using the place. See what has happened to me at Igando?”
