A group of Christians from a Pentecostal church who were on a routine visit to Kirikiri prison in Lagos, recently, were shocked when they came face- to- face with the notorious kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumebi Onwuamaegbu aka Evans, who has pleaded guilty to the charge of kidnapping and was remanded by court in the prison.
Reports said the Christians, whose numerical strength could not be ascertained, were in the prison on a Sunday, just few weeks after Evans was remanded and after routine checks, they demanded to pray for the notorious kidnap suspect. It was reliably learned that prison officials reluctantly agreed to their request and later brought the suspect to them.
Events took a dramatic turn immediately Evans saw the Christians with their bibles and scapulars as he was said to have made desperate request for a bible.
The bewildered preachers quickly obliged him with a new bible which he clutched intimately like a new born baby and thanked them profusely for the gift. The leader of the group who was visibly happy with the request announced that it was a show of repentance. Thereafter, they were said to have prayed for him after which he joyously went back to his private cell in the prison.
