The Nigeria Prisons Service have unveiled the identities of two inmates who escaped from its facility in Kuje as the Prison Commander is removed from Abuja.
It was widely reported online and on social media over the past weekend that two notorious kidnappers who abducted and killed a society lady, Mrs. Edith Chinedu Aliyu, escaped from the Kuje Prisons in Abuja, in a daring jailbreak on Friday evening.
DCP Francis Enobore, the Service Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Prisons Service on Monday in Abuja, unveiled the identities of the two inmates who escaped from its facility and gave the names of the escapees as Maxwell Ajukwu from Delta state and Solomon Amodu from Kogi.
Enobore said the inmates in question were awaiting trial for culpable homicide and have no relationship with Charles Okah in what ever manner as its being speculated, adding that efforts are on in collaboration with sister security agencies and relevant bodies to recapture the fleeing prisoners.
Meanwhile, new reports have revealed that the Minister of Interior, Alhaji Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau who visited the prison yesterday allegedly removed the Kuje Prison Commander, Deputy Comptroller of Prisons, Musa Tanko from Abuja.
