Evans is renowned for demanding ransom in foreign currencies and has now denied allegations that he received any money in South Africa.
“I don’t give bank account to my victims because it could be traced. Whoever made the allegations that he paid part of his ransom in South Africa isn’t sincere. I would have been arrested and they should bring the account number they paid the money into. The Interpol can trace the account and know the owner.
“I collect my ransom in Nigeria and after collecting it, I also do not travel abroad. I usually ask the people keeping my victims to tell them that I have traveled abroad. I usually call my victims’ relatives with my satellite phones and inform them that I was out of the country.
“This would make them relax a little and after some time, I will ask my boys to release the victims and drop them where they could locate their people,” he told Saturday Vanguard.
