A policewoman has been
accused of helping suspected
kidnapper Chukwudumeje
George Onwuamadike (aka
Evans the kidnapper) escape
justice in 2006.


The woman identified as Tina was until her arrest, a Chief
Superintendent of Police (CSP).


She was unveiled by a
Special Investigation Panel
(SIP) put together by Inspector General of Police
(IGP) Ibrahim Idris to probe
Evans' 2006 arrest, transfer
from Lagos State to Imo State and eventual release.


After the Evans was arrested last month, a senior police
officer told reporters that his
team had apprehended Evans
in 2006 after a bank robbery.
The officer claimed that
Evans and his gang members had a gun duel at the
National Theatre in Surulere,
Lagos Mainland after a
disagreement in sharing their loot.


According to the officer, Tina,
who was a Superintendent of
Police (SP) at that time,
mounted pressure on them to release Evans and two of his members who
had been arrested at that time, but
they refused to grant her
request,.

So she went through Imo
State Command, where a
signal was sent for the
transfer of the suspects. After this was revealed and
thoroughly investigated, Tina
was arrested. He said the police might soon
release statement on the
issue. A soucre close to The
Nation said: "I can tell you that Tina is not the woman's real name
but I won't give
you her name. I can also
tell you she's now a CSP
and still in service. So many officers took part
in that 2006/2007
release of Evans and they are being investigated. The panel
has made progress and almost all of them have
been identified.


An official statement might
be release by the
authorities soon."
