The family of Mrs. Chinwe Onwuamadike, mother of recently arrested billionaire kidnap kingpin Chukwumeme Onwuamadike a.k.a Evans, has denied knowledge of her whereabouts.

The elder brother, Daniel Nwosu, who stands as the head of Nwosu’s family in Akamili village, Umudim, Nnewi, said that he has not seen his sister for a very long while, adding that it is only her husband that can give account of where she is.

In an exclusive interview with News Express on Wednesday, Mr. Nwosu said: “I don’t have anything to say because I don’t know anything about the boy. If I see him now, I may not even recognise him.

“It’s been a very long time I saw him last. He doesn’t come home, neither does he visit his maternal home. So what can I say about him” You know children have a way with their mothers. So, it is possible she knows what Chidumeme (Evans) was into or the other way.

“It is the father or mother that can talk about their child. I don’t have anything to say but I appeal to the authorities to have mercy on him and forgive him.

“Children of this generation do not listen to advice, otherwise, why would he delve into such bad business, knowing the implications… because of money? See where it has gotten him.”

Though Mr. Nwosu claimed no knowledge of where his sister is, he added that when he heard the news through a phone call, he called Chidumeme’s mother to find out what was going on but she didn’t pick the call and didn’t call back.

Nwosu said that he has not been communicating with Chinwe (Chukwudumeme’s mother) for a long time because the woman doesn’t reach out to them.

In his words, “I have not spoken with Chidumeme’s mother for a very long time and I don’t know where she is and what is happening around her. She should be up there in her husband’s house but now I am hearing she is not there. I don’t understand what is happening. It’s unfortunate and sad. She is just who she is. I have been sick and bedridden for a long time, so I don’t go out at all; hence, I don’t know what is happening around here.”

The long distance ride to Chidumeme’s maternal home led to the discovery of a house allegedly built by Chidumeme’s mother for one of her brothers said to be based in Port Harcourt.

However, the maternal home of the kidnap kingpin showed a quiet middle class home with a Rav 4 SUV packed in a garage.

Chidumeme’s father had earlier said that his estranged wife left home not long before his son’s arrest without telling anybody where she was going to.

He also denied the rumour making the rounds that he divorced Chidumeme’s mother, saying: “I cannot divorce her because we took an oath on our wedding day that we will be together for better, for worse, till death do us part. Death is the only thing that can separate us. I did not also disown my son Chidumeme as speculated. He remains my son and if he is given a second chance and he returns home, I will welcome and accept him. I regret that I didn’t know what he was into, otherwise, I would have been the one to stop him by myself by bringing my friends in the force to arrest and torture him to stop.”
