Jailbreak reported in Kuje Prison


The Nigeria Prisons Service has confirmed that there was a jailbreak in the Kuje maximum Prison on Friday night but said it was yet to find out if any inmate escaped.
The Punch newspaper reports that the Public Relations Officer of the Service, Francis Enobore told one of its correspondent on the telephone that there was an “incident” at the prison on Friday night but added that it had nothing to do with the leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta, Charles Okah, who he said is “safe and sound.”
“Yes there was an incident yesterday, but Okah was not involved,” he said.

“It is not true, Charles Okah is still in custody. I have been in touch with our men in the prison facility and there is nothing like that [Okah escaping],” Enobore said.
“The Comptoller of prisons has ordered an investigation and that is going on. We want to know if anybody escaped and if yes, what are their identities,” he added.
Enobore the Service will release a statement once the preliminary investigation is concluded.
