Meanwhile, the wife of Evans has revealed that she was not privy to the criminal activities of her husband
Speaking to Vanguard, the woman revealed that she could not believe all that she had heard about her husband.
She said she did not know he was a criminal because he presented himself as a God fearing man who always led the family in prayer.
“I feel very bad because I did not know if he was doing all these or not. Even if he was into all these, why did he not stop because of me and his children? All the time when we pray, he used to promise God that he would tell Him his story later in life,” she said.
NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Evans confessed that he was caught by the police because his charm failed him.
