police officer told
urban express on
Thursday that apart from the weapons, three phones – a Turaya, and two
different Vertu phones – containing anti-tracking features were recovered from
the 36-year-old native of the Nnewi North Local Government Area, Anambra State.
The
officer said, “He has 11 phones. Two of them are special Virtu phones, which
are very difficult to track. He also has a Turaya, which is a satellite phone.
It can be used anywhere, including in the bush, on the sea, and desert, where
there are no GSM service. In Nigeria, we don’t have the capability to track
Turaya.
“He
said he bought the Virtu phones N4.6m. He used the three phones for his
nefarious activities. We succeeded in tracking him through the other phones he
has.”
A
detective stated that a number of SIM cards used by Evans complicated
the challenges posed by the sophisticated phones, adding that he bought the SIM
cards registered from miscreants in Computer Village, Ikeja.
He
said, “We studied and analysed 126 SIM cards before we caught him. We have
about two-page analysis of each of the numbers. He used 125 of those numbers to
call his gang members only and used one to call his mother, wife and sister. He
said he bought all the SIM cards already registered in Computer Village for
N1,500 each.

“We
picked his sister, his childhood friend with whom he attended primary school,
and four of his girlfriends. They gave us the information that led to his
arrest. Evans confirmed that they didn’t know he was into kidnapping. Because
of that, we granted them bail, while investigations continue.”
Meanwhile,
Force public relation Officer Jimoh Moshood said he will soon be charged to
court
