The richest leader of a notorious advanced high profile kidnapping gang operating in Nigeria, a 36 years, Chukwudi Dumeme Onuamadike, alias Evans, has been arrested by the men of the Nigeria Police Force, reports ITRealms.
 
The arrest of Evans and his gang, ITRealms gathered came at the weekend, just as the Inspector General of Police (IGP), had directed the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Jimoh Moshood to parade the gang in Lagos, at the Command Headquarters Lagos.
