Following the uncovering of kidnap dens ran by suspected kingpin, Chukwudemeje George Onwuamadike alias Evans, owners of bungalow structures at Jakande Estate, Isolo, on Monday June 19 commenced profiling of their tenants.
The Nation reports that the landlords, who expressed shock at the revelations by Evans, said they have started issuing forms to their tenants to establish their means of livelihood and other vital information.
NAIJ.com gathered that the residents said they usually saw young men at the bungalow situated at Green Street, which Evans used as detention camp but never suspected anything.
One Fatai Owolola said: “We never knew that the building was used to keep kidnapped victims. I only saw two young men going in and out of the bungalow without suspecting anything.
“The only time cars came in there was at night and it would immediately drive out. They took advantage of the quietness of the vicinity to carry out their evil deeds. Everybody goes out in the day time and comes back at night without nosing into other people’s businesses.”
Another resident, Mrs Chikwendu Odinaka, who said she has been in the neighbourhood for over 10 years, said: “Community leaders in the streets have printed out forms to residents. The forms are to know the names and places of work of residents.
“The affected streets are Brown, Purple, White, Blue, Green, Pink, Silver, Gold and Orange, Blue and White.”
It was gathered that Intelligence Response Team (IRT) operatives, who participated in Evans’ arrest allegedly, looted his house.
Rights activist, Femi Falana (SAN) on Monday June 19 reiterated his call for adequate police protection and fair trial for Evans.
Falana faulted the police on the media trial of Evans, calling for thorough investigation on all the leads and persons mentioned by the suspect.
