Policewoman Accused Of Releasing Billionaire Kidnapper Evans After His Arrest In 2006 Reportedly Arrested

By  | 

It’s been reported that the policewoman accused of helping notorious billionaire kidnapper Chukwudumeje George Onwuamadike aka Evans escape justice in 2006 has been arrested.

According to the report, the police woman identified as Tina was until her arrest, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) and she was unveiled by a Special Investigation Panel (SIP) put together by Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris to probe Evans’ 2006 arrest, transfer from Lagos State to Imo State and eventual release.  After Evans was arrested last month, a senior police officer disclosed that his team had apprehended Evans in 2006 after a bank robbery with claims that Evans and his gang members had a gun duel at the National Theatre in Surulere, Lagos Mainland after a disagreement in sharing their loot.

According to the officer, Tina, who was a Superintendent of Police (SP) at that time, mounted pressure on them to release Evans and two of his members who had been arrested at that time, but they refused to grant her request. So she went through Imo State Command, where a signal was sent for the transfer of the suspects. Afterwards this was revealed and thoroughly investigated, leading to Tina’s arrest.

It was also disclosed by a source that the police might soon release statement on the issue.

“I can tell you that Tina is not the woman’s real name but I won’t give you her name. I can also tell you she’s now a CSP and still in service. So many officers took part in that 2006/2007 release of Evans and they are being investigated. The panel has made progress and almost all of them have been identified. An official statement might be release by the authorities soon.” The soucre told The Nation.
