90% of what is said about Billionaire Kidnapper, Evans, on media are false – Abba Kyari

Abba Kyari, the Assistant Commissioner of Police
and head of Intelligence Response Team (IRT),  has urged members of
the public to ignore most of the comments purportedly made by kidnap kingpin,
Chukwudubem Onwuamadike, popularly known as Evans. He stressed that 90% of all information relating to the arrest of Evans and what Evans said that’s being
shared on social media and some print media are false.

Kyari said on his Facebook page:
“Friends: There is a need to clear the air on some issues that are misinforming/misleading
the good members of the public who are passionate about fighting crime. 

“First, 90 percent of all
information relating to the arrest of Evans and what Evans said that’s being
shared on social media and some print media are false. 

“Just like most Nigerians, I wake
up every morning and hear different false stories on social media pertaining to
how we arrested Evans and what he said. 

“Second, the actual strategy and
technology we used in arresting vampire, Evans and other big kidnappers is
known to only me and very few senior officers I am working together with in the
FHQ. 

 “Third, someone like Evans would never have
been arrested based on the few technics that were officially mentioned or the
ones circulating in social media which are actually technics already known to
criminals. 

“We’ve gone ahead of those technics.
Our real strategy and technology used in picking Evans and his gang members
have never been mentioned to the media or members of the public, and will never
be mentioned.

“Fourth, Evans faced the media
twice; first when he was paraded in the Lagos command HQ by the Force Public
Relations Officer and secondly when he took IRT detectives to his detention
camps in Lagos for the world to witness him taking the police to his camp that
only him and his boys knows. This is so that in future he cannot deny acquiring
and operating kidnapper’s detention camps in Lagos.

“Fifth, please I urge members of
the public to focus more on what they see or hear from major newspapers and
television stations who have names to protect and avoid the avalanche of lies
and fictions that is coming out from blogs and social media every day.

“Yes we agree Evans is the
biggest and most notorious criminal arrested during the social media age in
Nigeria, but there should be some decree of decorum and honesty in reporting
news please. Many thanks to all our friends and well-wishers, may the Almighty
bless us all in our endeavors.”
