Billionaire Kidnapper Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike aka Evans who was arrested by the Nigerian police and recently pleaded guilty to conspiracy and kidnapping before a judge of the Ikeja High Court.
Evans who is currently in prison awaiting furthering hearing from court has been allegedly reported to have tried to bribe his way out of prison by attempting to offer the prison guard $100,000 to facilitate his escape out of prison.
According to the report, his plot to escape was however unravelled by the Nigerian Police Force.
A source who disclosed this said he was in contact with some members of his gang by telephone which was smuggled into the prison.
The source said, “When Evans was in our custody, he tried to escape but we were able to abort all his plans. We discovered that he had access to phones which were hidden in the middle of loaves of bread, eba, semovita and so on.
“He was making calls from these smuggled phones in the middle of the night, making arrangements with some yet to be identified members of his gang to arrange for his escape.
“We intercepted how he was luring one of the guards with about $50,000 to $100,000. He wanted an insider to serve as informant to him and members of his gang.”
