Notorious kidnap kingpin Evans fraudulently secured Ghanaian passports for himself, his wife and his children with fake names. Evans was issued with a Ghanaian passport this year under a fake name, Asare Nelson in Accra.
Documents sighted by Joy News indicate that his wife and two children are also in possession of Ghanaian passports.
The Nigerian passport of his wife bears the name Uchenna Precious Onwuamadike issued at the Abuja passport headquarters.
Her Ghanaian passport bears the name Precious Asare born sometime in July of 1985. The children’s passports also bear the last name Asare all issued in Accra.
The document signed by the Nigerian Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP Abba Kyari said Mr Onwuamadike has moved his wife and five children to Ghana because of the nature of his business.
The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris at the meeting of West African Police Chiefs in Accra on Tuesday, revealed that the notorious kidnapper has a Ghanaian passport and cautioned the Ghanaian authorities to tighten modalities for the issuance of passports.
“Nigerians are celebrating the arrest of the Ghanaian-Nigerian. Ghanaian because he has a Ghanaian passport something you guys have to look at,” he advised.
