Arrested billionaire kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike popularly known as Evans has insisted that his parents were responsible for his present predicament.
Stating that his parents pushed him into the life of crime, the kidnap kingpin revealed that he is the first child of six children his mother had for his father.
Speaking in an interview with New Telegraph newspaper, Evans claimed his parents played a major role in pushing him into the illegal business. He recalled the reaction of his mum when she saw bullet wound on him stating that “She didn’t say anything. She only advised me to stop what I was doing.”
He continued: “I’m the first son. My father will not tell me today that he trained or catered for me. But if there was any way my father and step mother wronged me, I have forgiven them.”
Recall that Evans had earlier revealed that he sustained the gunshot wound in 2006 when a fight broke between himself and his gang members following a robbery operation. He disclosed that he was shot and left for dead.
Speaking on how he sustained the gunshot wound, Evans revealed that “It happened in 2008. A friend of mine invited us to come and make peace. They were having issue of money. When we got there, he started shooting everybody.
“The matter was between Emeka, Iyke and others. I tried to intervene and Iyke started shooting everyone. He shot so many people.
“Nothing led to it! I told you it was an issue over money. It was not a bank robbery. The major issue was between Emeka and Iyke. It was Emeka and Iyke that were having issues. Along the line, myself and others decided to intervene in the matter. Iyke now decided to call everyone in order to make peace.
“But on getting there, Iyke and his friends, Jude and Humphrey, started shooting at us.
“I wasn’t shot on my shoulder. I was shot on my hip (Lifts his shirt to show the scar). They were having issue over sharing of money.
“It was money they made from robbery. The money was from robbery of a filling station. They said they went to Con Oil Filling Station in the night to rob. It happened in 2008.”
Denying his involvement in the robbery, Evans said: “No! I didn’t go. I was not part of them. I was called to come and intervene in the issue, to make peace.
“Iyke called his friends to come and take their share of the money after the robbery. Later, Emeka now called me that they were having problems with Iyke seriously.
“He said that Iyke didn’t want to give them their share of the money. Emeka said that Iyke carried out the operation with his instruments (weapons) and as such, Iyke was supposed to give him part of the money.
“But Iyke didn’t want to share with Emeka, so I was called. It was supposed to be a peace talk.
“I was shot by Iyke. I can’t really say how many people he shot and killed on that day. I only know that after he shot me, I ran out of the place.”
