NIGERIA: Police Orders Full Investigation Into How Evans Was Released In 2006 After Arrested For Robbery

A reliable police source disclosed that the multi-million dollars kidnapper was arrested in 2006 for bank robbery but was freed soon after.

A reliable police source disclosed that the multi-million dollars kidnapper was arrested in 2006 for bank robbery but was freed soon after.
It was reported that Evans accepted that he was arrested in 2006 for armed robbery, thus, the investigation.
”There was a police woman at the band section of Police College, Lagos, Tina, who insisted that we dropped the case, as Evans was her brother. She travelled to Imo State thereafter. Not long after she returned, we got a message from the Imo State Police command that Evans was needed. We transferred the case,” the source said.
The source added that when he saw Evans’ pictures in the media, he recognised him as the man he investigated for armed robbery.
Evans accepts allegation
On the investigation of the 2006 arrest, another senior police officer, who pleaded anonymity, told The Sun that: ”Evans has confessed to the 2006 armed robbery attack on a bank and the shooting of seven persons.
”Following his confession, the police authorities want to know how Evans was freed over the armed robbery offence.
”We suspect that Evans was released without due process. The police officers who were involved, whether they are still in the force or not, would be fished out and made to face the law.
”I am telling you, heads will roll, if policemen were responsible for shielding an armed robber.”
