How Evans lived in grand style during his reign of terror (Video)
The billionaire kidnap kingpin who was arrested on Saturday, June 10, 2017, lived like a king and had a great taste for expensive things.
According to insiders, the unassuming Evans who dropped out of school in Junior Secondary School Two [JSS 2], had a taste for the flashy lifestyle that would shame many graduates who pride themselves in being up to date with good things of life.
It was gathered from police investigators that Evans who made billions of Naira from his kidnapping spree, bought a house in the highbrow Magodo Phase II GRA in the Shangisha area of Lagos State for a whopping N130 million and spent another N40 million to furnish the house with all the latest designs in interior decorations, including an inbuilt Jacuzzi.
The tiles and other fittings were all imported while the chairs were specially made for him by one of the best furniture makers in the country.
He also bought another house in the same Magodo GRA for a whopping N150 million and renovated it to the tune of N60 million, spending another N50 million to furnish it including a reflective gate with CCTV cameras with which he monitored the people coming in.
During a search of the houses by the police, a gold ring worth $75,000, was found on him while a wrist watch worth $170, 000, three phones he bought $6, 000 and other expensive accessories were found on him.
The phones are said to have tracking devices which made it possible for Evans to track the movements of the police and also monitor their conversations anytime they were closing in on him.
A lover of state of the art cars, Evans reportedly spent fortunes on vehicles like Range Rover Sport, BMWs, Cherokee Jeeps, Prado Jeeps, Sports Cras and two expensive Power Bikes.
Outside Nigeria, Evans built two duplexes in Accra, Ghana, spending millions of dollars on the properties and the furnishings to make sure he and his family lived like royalties.
It was also gathered that four days to his arrest, Evans had perfected plans to escape from the country and the first move was sending his wife and five children to Ghana with the hope of joining them later.
He was said to have sent N20 million to his wife in Ghana through a Bureau de Change which was delivered to her in Ghanaian currency, Cedi.
