“Evans is safe in our custody” — Police deny reports Evans vanished
Recall, it all started when the Sun Newspaper published a report alleging that the kidnapper who was arrested on the 10th of June in Lagos, was no longer in police custody, and his whereabouts was no longer known.
But then, the Police Force has debunked this report, and tagged it as false. Police spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood who spoke to newsmen this morning, said;
“The media need to avoid stories that could create fear, tension or misrepresentation among the masses. Where did Evans vanish to? That headline was misleading. The suspect and his accomplices are very much in our custody. We are working hard to ensure that justice is served at the end of the day. There are certain information that are not for public consumption to avoid jeopardising investigation or even national security. Evans is with the police. His whereabouts is known but cannot be made public. We are appealing to Nigerians to remain calm and support the police to conclude its investigation.”he said.
