A group of Christians from a Pentecostal church recently visited Kirikiri prison in Lagos, have recounted their experience with Evans the kidnapper whom they met during their visitation on Sunday.
According to Vanguard the evangelists requested to pray with Evans and were surprised to asked for a bible which they quickly obliged him with.
Sources at the prison revealed that Evans cried openly as he his trial commenced in Ikeja.
“We were in prison with other suspects that day when Evans was brought to court with the official vehicle of a top police officer in Lagos. He was shedding tears uncontrollably.
Then, after he was remanded, we took him to Kirikiri prison where he will stay pending his trial. Immediately we entered the prison yard with him, there was a tumultuous ovation by the inmates. In fact, he was giving a presidential treatment by the inmates. It was so much that he started responding by raising his hands with a white handkerchief while the resounding ovation continued. “That must have been why strict instructions were quickly given about him over his stay. We have a very strict Deputy Controller here and he planted informants who send him daily reports on the activities of both the inmates and prison officials. His strictness made it impossible for Evans, in particular, to have access to telephones or any electronic gadget inside his cell. In fact, he is staying in a private cell and only comes out to meet other prisoners under strict observations. We do not allow any visitor to see him. So far, the only visitors who have met with him were his brother and lawyer and they did that while being closely watched. Our Oga always insist that they come to his office to meet with him and they must converse in English language so that he would understand whatever they say.”
