A 28-year-old ex-soldier, Aduba Victor Nonso from Onitsha North Local Government Area of Anambra State, has revealed how he spent over N3million which Notorious billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike AKA Evans gave him for participating in several kidnapping crimes.
According to the dismissed soldier, who said he joined the Nigeria Army on August 15, 2009 and was posted to Abati Barracks, he spent the money on women and hotels bills and that drained the money and reduced him to poverty .
In an interview with Vanguard, Aduba said:
“My income was low and it wasn’t enough to fend for my family. One of my friends who is also from my home town known as Ikenna, led me into crime. He brought one of his friends, known as Skudo. They told me that Skudo was an importer. He told me that he imported clothes from China and we became friends. I used to escort him to his village whenever he was travelling and he paid me handsomely.
“Sometime in January 2015, he called me and asked that I should meet him at Ago-Palace Way where he claimed he lived with his family.
‘’He told me that there was a man owing him money and he needed me to come with my army uniform so that I could intimidate the man with my uniform. When I got there I saw Skudo, Ikenna, Evans and another person inside the car.
“The front seat was empty and I entered and sat on it. We drove towards Ajao Estate. Ikenna and Skudo brought out two rifles and when I saw them, I was shocked. I asked what they were doing but Evans gave me a hot slap. He told me that I was now part of their group. Then they brought out a cup filled with gin and a bullet in it and they asked me to swear never to disclose what I saw to anyone.

“After that Evans got a call from someone about someone he had been monitoring. Evans drove fast and he caught up with the person and kidnapped him. Skudo, Ikenna and the other man came out of the vehicle and kidnapped the man. While on our way, I saw a man on a power bike and I suspected he was the person giving information to Evans.
‘’He asked us to all alight from the vehicle and gave me N5000, promising to call me. One month later, Skudo called and gave N200,000 as my share, saying the balance of the money would be paid later. One month after that Skudo called again and said Evans said I should come for my balance. When I got to Ago and entered his vehicle, I sat in the front and we drove into Festac Town where we kidnapped a man.
“One month after, Skudo called and gave me N1.8million as my share. I also took part in two other kidnappings in Amuwo Odofin and Satellite Towns where I was given N800,000 each as my share. Evans didn’t pay me for the last operation and he stopped calling me for jobs.
“I spent most of the money on women and hotels. I also got married with part of the money.”

A Chinese father has been arrested for selling his 1-year-old daughter for £6,800 to pay off his gambling debts.

Chinese father sells his baby daughter to pay off gambling debts

Jiang, sold the one-year-old to a couple after owing more than 60,000 Yuan (£6,798), according to reports in China.

Jiang told his wife that he was taking their daughter to stay with his mother. He flew the child more than 1,150 miles away from their home in Guiyang, Guizhou province, last November.

Wang, his wife grew concerned after his failure to return three months later but repeatedly postponed their return.

In February, 2019, she checked her husband’s phone and found shocking conversations between her husband and her daughter’s buyers.

Wang went to her husband’s mother in Zunyi city, about 87 miles away, who informed her that her son and granddaughter left her weeks ago.

She immediately contacted police and they tracked Jiang down to a hotel in Guiyang last month.

When he was caught, Jiang admitted to owing a huge gambling debt and decided to take the drastic measure after seeing online adverts for child adoption.

Fortunately, the child was located by the police last Friday and reunited with her mum.

Jiang has been arrested and charged with suspicion of human trafficking, according to the police.
