How Evans plotted prison escape, offered warden N20m

The police have uncovered a plot by notorious kidnapper, Onwumadike Chukwudumeme aka Evans, to escape from prison custody.

Evans is alleged to have offered between $50,000 and $100,000 to one of the guards manning his cell to facilitate his escape, according to reports.

The report said the kidnap kingpin was plotting the escape before his recent arraignment in court.

A source who was quoted in the report said Evans allegedly coordinated his escape bid with some members of his gang on telephone, which he obtained through “suspicious” means.

The source said: “When Evans was in our custody, he tried to escape but we were able to abort his plans. We discovered that he had access to phones which were hidden in the middle of loaves of bread, eba, semovita and some other food items.

“He was making calls with the smuggled phones in the middle of the night, making arrangements with some yet-to-be-identified members of his gang, to arrange for his escape.

“We intercepted how he was luring one of the guards with $50,000 to $100,000. He wanted an insider to serve as informant to him and members of his gang.”
