Evans Is Safe In Custody-Police Custody

The police said today that the arrested kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme George Onwuamadike alias Evans is still in their custody and has not vanished..

The spokesman of Police Jimoh Moshood, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CPS), said Evans was safe and still under police watch.

Moshood was denying a sensational story published today by a Nigerian newspaper that Evans had vanished in police cell and is no more communicado.

Moshood urged Nigerians to not fret over the reported “vanishing” of suspected kidnap kingpin.

Moshood said investigation was still ongoing, adding that the suspect would be charged to court as soon as all ends were tied.

“The media need to avoid stories that could create fear, tension or misrepresentation among the masses. Where did Evans vanish to? That headline was misleading. The suspect and his accomplices are very much in our custody.

“We are working hard to ensure that justice is served at the end of the day. There are certain information that are not for public consumption to avoid jeopardising investigation or even national security.

“Evans is with the police. His whereabouts is known but cannot be made public. We are appealing to Nigerians to remain calm and support the police to conclude its investigation.”
