Kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeje George Onwuamadike, alias Evans, has rubbished the claim of his father who said he didn’t know his son’s occupation.
Evans on Sunday claimed that he gave his father N3million cash, a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) and a Hilux Van before he stopped visiting his hometown, Umudim, Nnewi in Anambra State.
The notorious kidnapper made the allegation when detectives took him to one of the dens his gang used for the detention of victims.
The bungalow situated at Green Street, Jakande Estate, Isolo, was rented by the kingpin, through his gang members in 2010 and he paid the rent yearly.
According to the suspect, the other two are situated at New Igando and Gowon Estate.
Evans, who said he believed his father must have started the pig husbandry from the money he gave him, blamed the man for what he turned into.
Before I stopped going home, I gave my father N3million and I bought him a jeep and pick up van. I believe that part of the money I gave him was what he used to establish the piggery business. Had it been my father had taken good care of me, I wouldn’t have become what I am today.
I dropped out of school at JSS2, when my father refused to send me to school. I have been fending for myself since I was 10 with the support of my mother, presently my mother is paralyzed. She’s on sick bed.
My wife was only lying that she did not spend part of my money. She only wants Nigerians to have sympathy for me. She did not know I was into kidnapping. I only told her that I am into drug, which she advised me to stop because it is dangerous.
Speaking further, Evans, who allegedly threatened his victims with death and even shot at some of them, said he believes in God.
I believe in God, that was why I mandated my wife to always wake my children up for prayers. My favourite Bible passage is Psalm 23.
My wife does not know why I loved the Psalm so much. I loved it because of the sins I have committed. I always asked my children to ask for forgiveness for me and also pray that I should not die young.
I believe in God because he’s the only one that can save me from the problem I find myself in. I believe it was greed that pushed me into kidnapping. I don’t believe in Juju.
