“We forced the driver and his police escort to open the van. We got N80m from the van and I was given N1.8m as my share.
“Another operation was in Enugu where I met a gang leader called ND. We adopted the same tactic to attack another bullion van containing N200m. When we wanted to share the proceeds, ND collected our guns and gave us N200, 000 each.”
Evans his third bullion van robbery was along Umuahia Road where his gang staged the operation. He admitted he used his own share of the proceeds from that robbery (N7m) to fully stock his Lagos shop.
