Vanguard News reported that two accomplices named Emeka and Baba Eko have been arrested due to their connection with the suspect's shady business.

It was alleged that the pair supplied Evans with information that led to different attacks on Chief Obianodo, the owner of Young Shall Grow (YSG) transportation company and Chief Donatus Dunu respectively.

Meanwhile, the notorious kidnapper who has been slammed with 40 counts charges bordering on murder, armed robbery and other crimes, has pleaded with the police to be pardoned and have the list of charges reduced.

In return, he promised to be of a more responsible behaviour.

The police can now smile after what Vanguard describes as an "extensive and intensive" investigation shrouded with uncertainty and doubt.
