Other charges are likely to be made against him.
Meanwhile, police have denied that Evans who attempted to escape when he was approached was shot during the arrest as reported in one section of the media.
The Accused allegedly set fire to the home of his ex-wife just over two weeks ago while persons were asleep inside.
