Evans ’ girlfriend: no policeman raped me
Amaka Offor, one of the alleged girlfriends of billionaire kidnap kingpin, Chukwudubem Onwuamadike, also known as Evans, has insisted that policemen never sexually molested her.
Offor said claims made about her in an October 13 petition written by Evans’ counsel, Olukoya Ogungbeje, were untrue.
In the letter, Ogungbeje said he was informed by Evans that Offor, “was roundly sexually molested and abused by the policemen of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team”.
But Offor told The Nation yesterday that he clearly told Ogungbeje that nobody raped her.
Offor, 35, said: “Evans is my friend. We met at a filling station in Okota area of Lagos. I used to help a friend to sell clothes at Okota. I went to buy fuel when I met him.
“He used to give me any amount I requested, from N20,000 to N30,000. I told his lawyer that nobody raped me. I saw the news on Facebook that I was raped. Please, nobody raped me.”
Her statement was corroborated by Evans’ brother in-law, Okwuchukwu Obiechina in, a separate interview.
Obiechina and his wife Nzube were arrested by the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT) last June 2 and re-arrested on October 1 on suspicion of attempting to obstruct investigation of the Evans case.
He said: “I am like a messenger to Evans’ family. There was a time their lawyer (Ogungbeje) asked me to go to Evans’ girlfriend, Amaka, to ask her whether anybody raped her.
“When I met her, she said that nobody raped her and I gave her a phone to speak to the lawyer which she did.”
The police told a Federal High Court in Lagos yesterday that Obiechina and his wife demobilised about nine of the trucks that were recovered from Evans.
“He had access to the kidnapper. He removed the brain boxes from the trucks that were recovered from Evans. That’s why he was arrested in October,” Police counsel, Emmanuel Eze, said.
He explained that the couple were being held following a warrant for their remand obtained by the police from a magistrate’s court.
But explaining his relationship with Evans, Obiechina said: “I am a brother in-law to Evans. I married his sister Mrs Nzube Obiechina.
“I did not know that Evans was involved in kidnapping until I was arrested by IRT operatives on June 2, 2017. When they invited me, I told them that I did not know anything about Evans’ kidnapping thing and I was released.
“On October 1, 2017, I was invited again by IRT operatives because Evans’ father told me to go and assist in solving Evans’ case.
“I was first called by Evans’ manager Mr. Chidozie Obiorah to go and remove fuse from Evans’ trucks – they were about 11 trucks – since they were not being used for work, that is, for security reasons.”
