The Joint Special Forces led by the Intelligence Response Team, the Lagos State Police Command’s Anti-Kidnapping Unit and Technical and Intelligent Unit of the Force under the supervision of the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State on the 10th of June, 2017 swooped and raided the criminal fortress of CHUKWUDI DUMEME ONUAMADIKE a.k.a EVANS, a native of Nnewi in Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra State who is the vicious leader of a highly organized kidnap for ransom syndicate and criminal gang terrorizing and responsible for several kidnap of notable/prominent Nigerians in Lagos State, including the Western, Eastern, South-South and some Northern States.  He has his gangs active and spread across these mentioned states.
2.   After anintense gun battle between that lasted several hours, CHUKWUDI DUMEME ONUAMADIKE and his gang were overpowered by the Superior Fire Power of the Joint Special Forces and he was arrested at MAGODO ESTATE, IKEJA AREA OF LAGOS STATE.
3.   CHUKWUDI DUMEME ONUAMADIKE a.k.a EVANS was first declared  wanted in August, 2013 when he masterminded the attempted kidnap of CHIEF VINCENT OBIANUDO, the owner of Young Shall Grow Motors in Festac, Lagos, where a Policeman attached to the victim foiled the attack and killed three ‘3’ of Evans gang members but also lost his life in the process.  Some of Evans gang members were subsequently arrested, but he regrouped after with several gangs and became more vicious and unleashes terror in the mentioned States of the Federation.
4.   EVANS and his gangs keep their victim kidnapped in Lagos Area at House No. 21 Prophet Asaye Close New Igando, Lagos State until the ransom is paid to him.  Ransom money are paid to him in Millions of Dollars, some victims are kept for upward of six to seven months until the last penny is paid.  He never reduces his tagged ransom money.  None of his gang members know his house.
5.   MODUS OPERADI OF EVANS
In every kidnap attack he has a separate armed group that kidnapped victim with him and has another armed group who takes over the victim to their hideouts and prevent them from escaping.  The members of the two ‘2’ groups don’t know each other.  They complied with Evans instructions.
EVANS, and the dreaded vampire who died during a gun duel with the Police Special Forces led by IRT and Imo State Police Command in a forest in River State early this year are axis of evil in kidnappings in Southern Nigeria States and some Northern State.  Thisis a huge success for the Nigeria Police Force.  The Force will build on this success and continue to prevent kidnap cases and criminality generally in the country, and ensure prompt detection of those crimes that cannot be prevented, and also ensure that perpetrators are arrested, investigated and prosecuted.
6.   PROPERTIES OWNS BY CHUKWUDI DUMEME ONUAMADIKE a.k.a EVANS: He has two (2) Mansions in Magodo GRA Phase 2 worth about three million naira (N300,000,000).

Part of the issues with the country is with the headline: "Billionaire Kidnapper". How on earth would reporters/bloggers assign wealth with the evil perpetrated by the suspect. Big issues hidden in plain sight "billionaire Kidnapper"...

Probably there was a whistle blower involved. There's no way, absolutely no way this Nigerian police could have done it on their own. Nigerian police that mount roadblocks everywhere all in the name of #100, police that run when they hear gun shots or is it the police that will tell drivers "Oga oya bless us"?
This one they manage to catch now we won't hear word again... Same thing with that Vampire guy. Perhaps when they're able to catch and prosecute Fulani herdsmen,extremist, delta militants then ehen.... We'll give kudos to this police. #fedupwithypocrisy#

This have nothing to do with tribe or section. there are criminals all over the tribes and all criminals must face justice. Calling a section in this is quite not appropriate because we all should rather condemn criminal no matter where such is from.

Did you notice the list of their victims has mostly Igbos in it ? This is really sad for the group of people calling for a sovereign state of biafra . These same igbo people are the ones who believe fellow igbos from neighboring tribes are slaves and don't even marry them. This just means that they will eventually kidnap and kill each other. Please let them go and lets see how the smart igbos who have massive investments all over the country as well as private sectors will manage them from biafra land(s) !
