THE last victim of billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike (popularly known as Evans), has given insights on how he merited a 50% discount on his ransom
Donatus Dunu, while providing evidence before an Ikeja Special Offences Court in Lagos, said the discount was given two days before Good Friday adding that he was abducted last year.
“Evans asked for my brother’s phone number and I gave him. They called my brother, Anselm Dunu, that I should tell him my bill is €1 million through a conference call. They were beating me that I should say that I have agreed that I will pay €1 million and I told my brother.
“They had been calling my brother almost every day and they will be beating me so that my brother will hear my crying. So at a time I asked my brother to start looking for where to borrow money.”
“At a time they said they have been able to raise up to ₦60 million naira which I asked the chairman (Evans) to take the ₦60 million naira and when I come out I will make the remaining money for him but he said me and my brother are saying rubbish.”
“At a time they tried to change the money to euro but Evans said no because there was a time around March when naira appreciated, he asked them not to change it anymore that it’s not euro again but naira and when naira started depreciating again he asked them to change it back to euro.”
“I pleaded that euro was too hard to get and his boys advised me to ask him to give me discount and he came down from €1million to €500,000; that is about 50% discount.”
