Assistant Commissioner of Police and head of Intelligence Response Team (IRT), Abba Kyari, has urged members of the public to ignore most of the comments purportedly made by kidnap kingpin, Chukwudubem Onwuamadike, popularly known as Evans.
He stressed that most of the information shared about the kidnapper was false
According to Kyari, the strategy used by security agents to track and nab Evans was confidential information that was known to only him and a few senior officers in the Police force, which was in contrast to what had filtered into the public domain.
He noted that Evans faced the media only twice and could not have been issuing public statements on a daily basis as conveyed by some section of the media.
Kyari said on his Facebook page: “Friends: There is a need to clear the air on some issues that are misinforming/misleading the good members of the public who are passionate about fighting crime.
“First, 90 percent of all information relating to the arrest of Evans and what Evans said that’s being shared on social media and some print media are false.
“Just like most Nigerians, I wake up every morning and hear different false stories on social media pertaining to how we arrested Evans and what he said.
“Second, the actual strategy and technology we used in arresting vampire, Evans and other big kidnappers is known to only me and very few senior officers I am working together with in the FHQ.
