Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO) Jimoh Moshood, a Chief Superintendent of Police, (CSP), on Saturday insisted that Evans never vanished from its custody nor died as being speculated.

“Evans is still in police custody; he is hale and healthy and he has been assisting the police further in their investigation.”

Moshood described those peddling the rumour as mischief makers who were only out to tarnish the image of the Nigeria police.

“The people are just mischievous. Evans did not vanish, Evans is still in police custody and we are making progress in the investigation,”he said.

He said that the police has a warrant from the court to keep him for three months.

Evans was arrested on June 10 in Lagos by members of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT).
