Stephen Onwuamadike, father of billionaire kidnap kingpin, Chukwudubem Onwuamadike, a.k.a Evans on Friday reacted to claim by his son that he gave him N3 million and a Sports Utility Vehicle, SUV.
Stephen dismissed his son’s claim as false, urging security operatives to take him to Prophet T.B Joshua for deliverance before any other thing.
Evans had told reporters last weekend when he took detectives to one of the dens where his gang used for the detention of victims on Green Street, Jakande Estate, Isolo, Lagos that he gave his father the gifts.
He had said,
“Before I stopped going home, I gave my father N3million and I bought him a jeep and pick up van.
“I believe that part of the money I gave him was what he used to establish the piggery business.
“Had it been my father had taken good care of me, I wouldn’t have become what I am today.”
However, Stephen told The Nation that nothing could have been farther from the truth than the allegation by his son.
He said in his Nnewi, Anambra State home,
“If he insists that he gave me money, they should ask him when and how he brought the money to me, whether through the bank or through anybody.
“I have been in poverty in Nnewi here and feeding has been a problem for me and somebody, somewhere said he gave me N3million.Where is the money or any sign of it in this house?
“Money does not hide, I feed myself and my mother with this small piggery I’m running, while my mother engages in buying of goats to keep body and soul together even at her old age”
“My son should stop talking of things that are impossible and pray to God for forgiveness. I have never been in support of bad things in life and will never engage in such at this age.”
Onwumadike (snr) also disputed claim by Evans that he has herbalists in Nnewi (one of whom, according to him, is a traditional ruler) who were preparing charms for him.
“Security operatives should take him to Pastor T.B Joshua for deliverance before any other thing, but he should stop dropping names”, he said.
