Though his son lived large in Lagos, Evans’ father survives selling pigs in Anambra

Though his son lived large in Lagos, Stephen, the father of Chukwudubem Onwuamadike, popularly known as Evans, lives a low life.
Evans was the kidnap kingpin arrested by the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team, led by Assistant Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari.
Stephen, in an interview with New Telegraph in Nnewi, Anambra State, said it was Evans’s mother, Etty, that led him to his destruction.
He, however, still pleaded that his son should be pardoned.
Stephen, who sells pig for survival, told New Telegraph: “I was devastated when I heard the news through a telephone call; since that call, I had not been able to sleep a wink. I believe in a straight forward and honest life. If I noticed someone is not honest, I run away from the person.  When my business was thriving, I did business with white people. I was one of the early millionaires that emerged from this town until things went wrong courtesy of my first wife in 1985. She caused me so many problems and eventually caused my financial ruins. In fact, she brought me down to where I am today. I’m suffering and I can barely put food on my table.
“My estranged wife kept interfering in his academic training. You won’t believe that my son Chukwudumeje (Evans) has not visited home since 2008 till date. The last time I saw him, was 10 years ago. I asked him the sort of business he was into. He said he was into drug trafficking. I advised him to desist because it was an illicit business and the law was against it. I told him plainly that it was better to be involved in a legitimate business and wait for God’s blessing. I did good business, and it thrived; I was very successful. I have travelled to so many countries of the world in the course of my business, but my wife ruined me and ran away.
“His mother started manipulating him when he was only three years old; look at where it has gotten him. I don’t even have his phone number. I’m pleading with the Nigerian authorities to have mercy on him and give him a second chance. He was misdirected and misled by his mother. I heard about all the millions, and I said to myself, do I have such manner of rich son and the roof over my house is leaking. I now survive by selling pigs.”
Etty only had words of plea when confronted.
She pleaded with the General Overseer of Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, to intervene on behalf of Evans.
Etty said: “Chukwudumeje is a nice boy when he lived with me. The only gift I gave him years back was the holy bible. I believe that boy is a vessel for God. They should give him a second chance. He will turn out to be the Paul of our time; to be used by God. He has erred, but the authorities should give him a second time. I don’t want my son to die. I’m still convinced he will serve God.”
