The operatives of the Nigerian Police Force have arrested a soldier, Lance Corporal, Victor Chukwunonso, who worked as a gang member of the notorious kidnap kingpin, Chukwudimeme Onwuamadike aka Evans.
It is understood that Chukunonso with Army No: 09/NA/64/6317 is attached to the Nigeria Army Band Corps, Abatti Barracks, Surulere, Lagos.
The Punch gathered that he was arrested on Saturday by operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team.
Meanwhile, there are very strong indications that Evans, a billionaire kidnap kingpin, who had successfully coordinated and masterminded several high profile kidnappings and armed robberies within Lagos, Anambra and Enugu States, may get a life imprisonment or death penalty sentence.
This is after the Lagos state Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode signed into law, the state kidnapping prohibition bill, 2016 which prescribes Life Imprisonment or death penalty for the offence of Kidnapping and forceful extortion in Lagos State.
Literally, the bill, which was passed by the Lagos State House of Assembly on January 5, provides death penalty for kidnappers whose victims die in their custody, and life imprisonment for the act of kidnapping.
