One of the girlfriends of kidnap kingpin, Chukwudubem Onwuamadike aka Evans, Amaka Offor, has denied claims by Evans’s lawyer, Olukoya Ogungbeje, that she was sexually molested by some police officers.
Ogungbeje in a petition he filed before the Police Sevice Commission last week, alleged that some police officers sexually molested Amaka while trying to get Evans arrested. He also alleged that the police officers have extorted over N50 million from his client. The police in a statement released by the public relations officer, Jimoh Moshood, denied the alegations saying it is false and baseless.
Amaka granted an interview with Vanguard and refuted the allegations made by the lawyer. She says she doesn’t know where the lawyer got his story from. According to her, she hasn’t even met with the lawyer before.
“I don’t know where that lawyer got his story from and I have never met him. I have also not seen or spoken to Evans since he was arrested. I changed my phone number after he was arrested and I don’t think he has the new phone number. After he was charged to court where he pleaded guilty, I tried to see him in prison and speak with him, but I was not allowed to see him. The wardens did not tell me why I could not see him, but they took the food I brought for him and promised that they will give it to him. I was troubled when I read the story of the lawyer accusing the policemen, who arrested Evans, of sexually molesting me, while they were trying to use me to lure Evans out of hiding. I am not a baby and I know when I am being sexually molested and abused. Nothing of such happened and I think I have to set the record straight.”
Continuing, Amaka said “One week before Evans was arrested, some policemen accosted me on my way to the market and arrested me. Though they were hostile to me at the time they arrested me. I was completely in shock when they told me that Evans who I know and still call Chukwuebuka Mike, was a robber and kidnapper. I did not believe it. They later told me that they wanted me to lure him to my house because I told them that he was fond of my children and he normally spent time with us. The policemen were in my house. I was always in my room and they were always in the seating room. They provided all the money we used in cooking throughout their one week stay in my house. They were strategizing on how to arrest Evans. They also bought the fuel we used in powering the generator. On the day Evans was arrested, he called me around 5:am and the policemen brought the phone to me in my room and gave it to me. I answered the call and he told me not to drop the call. I thought I was standing by the gate and I did not put on any slippers. I walked out of the gate on barefoot. When I opened the gate, I saw him parked across the road and I entered into his vehicle. The moment I saw him, I was panting and he asked what was happening. I told him policemen where in my house for one week and they were looking for him. He zoomed off immediately and took me Iyana-Ipaja where he dropped me. He left with my phone. That was the last time I saw him. I was surprised when his lawyer said I was sexually abused by the policemen who arrested him.”.
