Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, commonly known as Evans, and his co-defendant Victor Aduba received a 21-year prison sentence from Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of the Ikeja Special Offenses Court on Monday for the kidnapping of Sylvanus Hafia.
On June 23, 2014, at around 5:30 p.m., along Kara Street in Amuwo Odofin, Lagos, they were accused of planning to abduct Sylvanus Ahanonu Hafia and holding him captive while demanding a $2 million ransom.
They did, however, enter a not guilty plea to the four accusations.
The judge concluded that the penalty would discourage potential kidnappers in the future.
The weekend of June 10–11, 2017, saw the arrest of Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike in Lagos.
As one of the wealthiest offenders involved in kidnapping in Nigeria, Evans is sometimes referred to as “The Billionaire Kidnapper” by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF). He generated profits of up to $1 million in some of his operations.
He is a very clever, cunning, and brilliant kidnapper who managed to avoid being arrested for four years despite being on three states’ most wanted lists and was also labeled as such by the Inspector General of Police’s Special Intelligence Response Team (IRT) of the Nigerian police force.
