Family members of the wife of notorious kidnapper Evans, have said that they do not know anything about her as she had not been communicating with them.
The family of Uchenna Precious Onwuamadike, the wife of the billionaire kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike alias Evans, recently arrested by the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team [IRT], have come out to distance themselves from her.
One of her elder brothers, Chukwuemeka Okoye who spoke to Vanguard Newspaper in an interview, said Precious has not visited her people in her village at Awo Oraifite in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State since she got married to the billionaire kingpin in 2006.
Okoye who spoke on behalf of the family after many people insinuated that Precious had been doling out huge cash to them, said even when their father died in 2014, Precious who is the last of 13 children of the Okoyes, and her husband, Evans, did not attend the burial.
Okoye said that she had never communicated with him and other members of the family even on the telephone, saying that he did not even know that she had five children in the marriage.
When shown the photograph of his sister, her husband, and their five children, Okoye who is a farmer and a daily paid laborer at the Oraifite market said he would not be able to identify his brother-in-law, Evans, and the children if they meet.
“Our father was very sick when Uchenna got married and he was bedridden for eight years before he died in 2014.
It was her father-in-law that came for the burial. Once she got married, nobody heard from her again and sometimes we heard that she was living abroad.
My elder brother who is living abroad once told me that he communicated with her and there was no way I could know their present predicament because I do not watch television, neither do I have a mobile phone that can be used for browsing.”
Okoye added that despite the poverty in their family, Uchenna and her husband never cared and said that he had not even heard that his sister’s husband was a kidnapper.
According to him, their aged mother who is said to be diabetic is presently staying with one of his brothers in the North and has been away for over one year.
Another of Precious' family members who is a Reverend of the Anglican Church, said they did not know much about her because she was not communicating with the family, adding that he only knew about their present situation from the Internet.
