Kidnapper Evans’ plot to Escape Uncovered by Police

Suspected kidnap kingpin Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike popularly referred to as Evans reportedly attempted bribing a prison guard with $100,000 to facilitate his escape from prison.

Evans, who is being held at Kirikiri prison, has pleaded guilty to the kidnapping charges leveled against him.

But while in custody in Abuja, the suspect had reportedly attempted escaping, before he was transferred to Lagos.

A source who spoke to The Nation said Evans had obtained cell phones smuggled through food items, and with them communicated with members of his gang still at large.

He had then offered a prison guard about $100,000 to help him facilitate his escape.

The source said:

When Evans was in our custody, he tried to escape but we were able to abort all his plans. We discovered that he had access to phones which were hidden in the middle of loaves of bread, eba, semovita and so on.

He was making calls from these smuggled phones in the middle of the night, making arrangements with some yet to be identified members of his gang to arrange for his escape.

We intercepted how he was luring one of the guards with about  $50,000 to $100,000. He wanted an insider to serve as informant to him and members of his gang.
