Sadly, the policewoman identified as Tina who helped the notorious kidnapper escape detention back in 2006 is still in active service.
The Nation reports that a Special Investigation Panel constituted by Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to probe Evans’ 2006 arrest and eventual release found out that the so-called Tina was not only in active duty but is also currently holding the position of a Chief Superintendent of Police.
This investigation follows a revelation by a senior police officer that Evans was arrested in 2006, after his gang of robbers attacked a commercial bank in Lagos and went somewhere around the National Arts Theatre, Iganmu, to share the loot which resulted in a disagreement that saw seven members of the gang dead and three others arrested including Evans.
The senior officer said his team then went to Mbidi police station, Imo state, for investigation, where two other gang members were arrested. He however, said a police woman identified as Tina at the Band Section of Police College, Lagos pushed for Evans’ release on the grounds that he was her brother.
There was a police woman at the Band Section of Police College, Lagos, Tina, who insisted that we dropped the case as Evans was her brother. She traveled to Imo state. Not long after she returned, we got a message from the Imo state police command that the command had been searching for Evans and requested we transferred the case.
Evans has also reportedly confessed to the 2006 armed robbery attack on a bank and the shooting of seven persons.
According to a source the new police panel has made significant progress in its investigation and has arrested Tina even though he claims that is not her real name.
I can tell you that Tina is not the woman’s real name but I won’t give you her name. I can also tell you she’s now a CSP and still in service. So many officers took part in that 2006/2007 release of Evans and they are being investigated. The panel has made progress and almost all of them have been identified. An official statement might be release by the authorities soon.
