The Lagos State Prisons says suspected kidnap kingpin, Chukwudi Onuamadike, known as Evans, does not receive special treatment.
“Evans” is being held at the Kirikiri Prisons with rumours saying he gets special treatment from Prisons officers.
However, the Controller of Prisons in Lagos, Tunde Ladipo, has debunked the stories, describing Evans as an “ordinary inmate” who does not get special treatment.
“We have rules and regulations that guide them. Evans is like every other inmate in prison”, Ladipo said in an interview with sources.
“We have laws rules and regulations that guide them. Evans is like every other inmate in the prison. There is nothing special about him. It is just that there is so much hype about him being a suspected kidnapper.
Speaking further, Ladipo said:
“As far as I am concerned, he is an ordinary inmate. So far, so good. There is no way he can even go above the law because he can’t have that chance. We have ensured that our prisons are secure. So there is no cause for alarm.
“In the cases of inmates making use of telephone and other facilities, I assure you that if any case like that comes up and we investigate and find it to be true, we will not hesitate to take positive action. For now, I assure you that we don’t have such thing in our prisons.”
Evans was arrested in June by operatives of the Nigerian Police Force.
