Uchenna Precious Onwuamadike, wife of Nigeria’s Kidnap kingpin, Chikwudubem Onwuamadike alias Evans, has begged Nigerians to have mercy on her and their children.
Vanguard reports that the 31-year-old Uchenna who phoned in from Ghana revealed she got married to him at the age of 17 in 2004 and that their marriage is blessed with 5 children.
She denied knowledge of the career her husband had chosen for himself that she always thought Evans was into buying and selling.
Read her narration below;
‘I am not aware that he was into crime. All I know about his business is that he was into haulage, buying engine and spare parts for trucks and imports exhaust pipes. That was what he told me.
I pressured him to find something for me to do and he promised to do that. Several times, I asked him to take me to his office but he said they move from place to place to offload goods in haulage business and share profits. .
I was always indoors because he warned me to beware of Lagos women that they are wayward. When I heard all the allegations against him after his arrest, I was confused until I opened websites.
I collapsed and later called my kids to inform them what I just read about their father. Since then, I have not eaten, I am still in shock. Our children could not believe what they were reading about their father. .
In fact, while we were in Nigeria, he had never slept outside our house. My children were crying when they saw his bloody eyes and swollen face.
I am not aware that he has five girlfriends. As his wife, I should have seen the signs but I have not.
He has colon cancer and does not drink alcohol nor smoke anything. He has never told me he has another house at Igando. He reads psalm 23 a lot.
Even his phone, he sets alarm for 12 noon to read psalm 23. He used to lead us in prayers. I am appealing to the powers that be to spare his life. Have mercy on us. God knows I will not be alive and see my husband doing bad thing and keep quiet.
I am appealing to the powers that be to spare his life (crying), as I speak now, I am kneeling down with my children, crying and begging for forgiveness. Have mercy on us. He did not know what he was doing. He did not know what came over him. I am ready to come back to Nigeria and plead on his behalf. What I am reading in the news is shocking.
All his wealth should be sold off and given to his victims. I will also like to see the Governor of Lagos state and explain the whole thing to him.
They said he is rich but I have only N13, 000 in my Diamond bank account. He does not give me money. He told me he will be paying N40, 000 into my account every month but after two months, he stopped, claiming that he was penniless.
