Father of billionaire kidnapper dines with poverty, says wife misled his son

Following the arrest of his son Chukwudi “Evans” Dumeme Onwuamadike, the father of the arrested billionaire kidnapper, Mr. Stephen Onwuamadike, who revealed how poor he was to newsmen further what transpired between him and his son the last time he saw him.

According to him, the last time he saw his son was in 2008 at which time he advised him to desist from illegal means of acquiring wealth. He further claimed that it was Evans’ mother who misled him and this has been on since he was three-years-old.

In his chat with New Telegraph, Evan’s dad said he used to be very wealthy but Evans’ mother led to his downfall and she left him with nothing. His current wife and her son also accused Evans’ mother of being the person behind Evans’ predicament. They painted Evans as a good and loving son who was only under the influence of his mother.

He said:

“I was devastated when I heard the news through a telephone call; since that call, I had not been able to sleep. I believe in a straight forward and honest life. If I noticed someone is not honest, I run away from the person.

When my business was thriving, I did business with white people. I was one of the early millionaires that emerged from this town until things went wrong courtesy of my first wife in 1985.

She caused me so many problems and eventually caused my financial ruins. In fact, she brought me down to where I am today. I’m suffering and I can barely put food on my table.”

Stephen who lives in his country home at Akammili, Umudim, Nnewi, Anambra State, said that he tried his best to raise Evans by sending him to the best schools around.

“My estranged wife kept interfering in his academics. You won’t believe that my son, Chukwudumeje (Evans) has not visited home since 2008. The last time I saw him was 10 years ago. I asked him the sort of business he was into.

He said he was into drug trafficking. I advised him to desist because it was an illicit business and the law was against it. I told him plainly that it was better to be involved in a legitimate business and wait for God’s blessings. I did good business and it thrived; I was very successful. I have travelled to so many countries of the world in the course of my business,” Stephen said.

He added:

“His mother started manipulating him when he was only three years old; look at where it has got him. I don’t even have his phone number. I’m pleading with the Nigerian authorities to have mercy on him and give him a second chance.

He was misdirected and misled by his mother. I heard about all the millions, and I said to myself, do I have such manner of rich son and the roof over my house is leaking. I now survive by selling pigs.”

Evans’ stepbrother, Chidolie Onwuamadike, said his brother’s ruin was caused by his mother. He noted that if Evans had followed their father’s advice, he wouldn’t have become a criminal.

Chidolie said:

“As brothers, we don’t even interact at all. I don’t have his number and my heart is pained because he is such a loving, nice guy from the little I know of him.”

A tearful Mrs Etty Onwuamadike, Evans’ mother said:

“Chukwudumeje is a nice boy when he lived with me. The only gift I gave him years back was the Holy Bible. I don’t want my son to die. I’m still convinced he will serve God.”

Stuff and nonsense. When a child is good, he resembles his father but when he is bad, his mother caused it. you that abandoned your child since he was 3 years old, what should be said of you. if you had given him a stable home, and joined in raising him woulda been a diff case now. you that obviously could not keep it in your pants, hence a 2nd wife. hide your head in shame.

My dear,u have sed it all! What a nonentity. The man even said so I have a rich son and d roof of my house is leaking yet he makes us believe he was condemning d sons crimes! In oda words,he wd have loved to use crime money to fix his roof! Wat a father! 15 mouths…


Are you really going to criticise this man? He said his wife left him when things got bad, if they had left the child with him and the child suffered or died, you’d have still judged him, a man that didn’t get penny from his billionaire son is still pleading for his life, what else can a father do again?

Well said!! You just said my mind.

Your head dey dere


I felt pained the very day I read the story about this dude, not cos I have any pity for him but for his deeds that caused so many people pains & even death. I strongly believe he should have known a day like this will come when he will meet his ends. The mother may be the fault or maybe innocent but apportioning blame now is immaterial, just like crying over a spill milk or a splash drink. I have seen families the parents did all the best they could but their child still end up in crime. In often time is not the fault of the parents the way their children behaves rather greed & societal influence could manipulate their actions. A child that is bent on destroying his life will never heed to advice. I feel for the parents & other siblings including his own family for the shame & disgrace his deed will bring on them.

Oh…. papa no more worries…, your son is just relaxing in a cool place… Now you can sleep like a baby

Eeya…the agony of an old man

But you enshyon the money….

He did not even use the money to take care of his son
Or maybe he refused to receive from him…


So its the mother’s fault now.. Both parents are responsible forvtgeir children.They are both to blame when they do not turn out well..Oga you and ur wife failed perhaps he’s old enough to what’s good from bad!

He must die!,no second chance,he has dealt with so many families!


Now everybody don’t even have his number when he has been caught by the law. The man should just allow the law to finish it’s own job on the Criminal since his wife didn’t allow him to do his fatherly job on him. Shikena.


That second chance part can only be possible if it is inherent in our laws.


Say al the good things u want of him, my prayer is for him not to b released. Which second chance? You al talked to him, n help still didn’t listen, he was in2 drug n now kidnappings. He acquired money n kept on kidnappings of innocent people with families to feed. Released him n he will do worse again, only this time he will b careful not to get caught. He is better off being punished for his crime. Kidnapping is a capital offence abeg

Let c if d wife ll stand by him smh
