Billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudubem Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, has disclosed that his father was the reason why he took to crime.
Evans as he is popularly called revealed that the decision of his father to disown him drove him into social vices.
This is contrary to claims by the suspect’s father, Stephen Onwuamadike who alleged that his estranged wife manipulated Evans into taking up crime.
Speaking with Vanguard, the kidnap kingpin alleged that he was forced to drop out of school while in Junior Secondary School Class 2, when his “father drove his mother, Chinwe, away and married to another woman.”
The kidnap kingpin maintained that his father, a businessman asked him to join another business man, a spare parts dealer, in Nnewi, who he served for five years without settlement because the man later accused him of stealing.
Evans, who hails from Akamili, Umudim Quarters in Nnewi, Anambra State said the allegation embarrassed his father “so much that he drove him out of his house.”
He stated that his father’s action affected him so much that he was forced to move into his mother’s house, who later raised money for him, with which he used in travelling to Lagos.
According to the Kidnap kingpin, on arriving Lagos, he started selling diesel to luxury buses and truck drivers at Alafia Bus-stop along Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
He explained that, while he was selling diesel, he slept in a bus garage and there he joined a robbery gang.
