64 Boko Haram Suspects Have Escaped- Minister Of Defence, Bashir Magashi

Bashir Magaid, the Minister of Minister of defense said that no fewer than 64 inmates undergoing trial for terrorism were among those that escaped from the Kuje Medium Prison after the attack on Tuesday night, July 5.

Addressing journalists after taking an assessment tour of the facility, the minister said

“The attack started around 10:30pm. They came in their numbers gained entrance into the prison and released some of the inmates and we are now following to see the kind of inmates that they have released.

“Very soon, we will give you the correct figure of the inmates that were taken. Aside from that, we are trying to see what we can do to ensure that all escapees are returned back.

The prison is accommodating about 994 inmates and over 600 escaped. Many people have been recaptured and brought back to prison. Maybe by the close of the day, more will have been captured and returned.

I think everything is under control. The people who came to do this activity, from the records, we believe they belong to a particular group. Most likely, they are Boko Haram members because we have a sizeable number of Boko Haram suspects in detention, and presently we cannot locate any of them.

I think they are about 64 in the prison and none of them now is available they have all escaped.”
