Police operatives in Kaduna State have arrested one of the inmates who escaped from the Medium Security Correctional Centre, in Abuja following an attack on the facility by terrorists.
The 60-year-old suspect, Ali Shu’aibu, who hails from Kano State, is the latest inmate to be recaptured after hundreds of prisoners fled the correctional centre last month.
He was apprehended by the police operatives at a location in Kaduna on Sunday while he was on transit to Kano.
Mr Mohammed Jalige, the Public Relations Officer in Kaduna confirmed this in a statement on Monday, a day after the suspect was nabbed.
He explained that the suspect, according to preliminary investigation, revealed that he was part of the inmates who escaped during the attack on the correctional centre in the nation’s capital.
