Father Of Arrested Billionaire Kidnap Kingpin Evans Lives In Abject Poverty, Reacts To Son’s Arrest

The father of arrested billionaire kidnap kingpin, Chukwudi ‘Evans’ Dumeme Onwuamadike has reacted to the arrest of his son few days ago by men of the police force.

The father of the criminal mastermind, Mr. Stephen Onwuamadike, revealed to newsmen that he lives in abject poverty and that his son’s money has in no way filtered through to him.

According to the arrested suspect’s father, he last saw his son in 2008, a time when he advised him to desist from his illegal dealings through which he acquired his health. Speaking further, the criminal mastermind’s father claimed his wife was responsible for his illegal means of acquiring wealth adding that Evan’s mother misled him and this has been on since he was three-years-old.

In a chat with New Telegraph, Evan’s dad revealed that he used to be very wealthy but met his downfall in the hands of Evans’ mother who later left him with nothing.

Evans’ father said: “I was devastated when I heard the news through a telephone call; since that call, I had not been able to sleep. I believe in a straight forward and honest life. If I noticed someone is not honest, I run away from the person.

“When my business was thriving, I did business with white people. I was one of the early millionaires that emerged from this town until things went wrong courtesy of my first wife in 1985.

“She caused me so many problems and eventually caused my financial ruins. In fact, she brought me down to where I am today. I’m suffering and I can barely put food on my table.”

Mr. Stephen Onwuamadike further noted that he tried his best to raise an honest man by sending Evans to the best school around.

Speaking from his country home at Akammili, Umudim, Nnewi, Anambra State, he added: “My estranged wife kept interfering in his academics. You won’t believe that my son, Chukwudumeje (Evans) has not visited home since 2008. The last time I saw him was 10 years ago. I asked him the sort of business he was into. He said he was into drug trafficking. I advised him to desist because it was an illicit business and the law was against it. I told him plainly that it was better to be involved in a legitimate business and wait for God’s blessings. I did good business and it thrived; I was very successful. I have travelled to so many countries of the world in the course of my business.”

He continued: “His mother started manipulating him when he was only three years old; look at where it has got him. I don’t even have his phone number. I’m pleading with the Nigerian authorities to have mercy on him and give him a second chance.

“He was misdirected and misled by his mother. I heard about all the millions, and I said to myself, do I have such manner of rich son and the roof over my house is leaking. I now survive by selling pigs.”

Evans’ stepbrother, Chidolie Onwuamadike, in reaction to the arrest noted that his half-brother’s downfall was orchestrated by his mother and his lack of listening ears to their father’s advise.

“As brothers, we don’t even interact at all. I don’t have his number and my heart is pained because he is such a loving, nice guy from the little I know of him.”

His mother, Mrs Etty Onwuamadike, in reaction to her son, Evans’ arrest said: “Chukwudumeje is a nice boy when he lived with me. The only gift I gave him years back was the Holy Bible. I don’t want my son to die. I’m still convinced he will serve God.”
