Police Dismiss Evans Lawyer’s Claim Of Extortion


The Nigeria Police Force has denied claims that officers of the Inspector General of Police’s Intelligence Response Team, IRT extorted over N50 million and other valuables from billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike (popularly known as Evans), while in police custody.

Jimoh Moshood, the Force Public Relations Officer, said in a statement on Sunday that the report, which also accused the police officers of sexually molesting Evans’ girlfriend, Amaka Offor, was untrue.

Mr. Moshood, a Chief Superintendent of Police described the claims as “absolute falsehood, misleading, unfounded, and deliberate attempt to cast aspersion on the thorough and discrete investigation carried out by the Nigeria Police Force in all the offenses committed by Evans, who had pleaded guilty in court to multiple kidnappings, murder, armed robbery, and other capital offences.”
