One of the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists who escaped from Kuje correctional center, Hassan Hassan has been recaptured by the police in Nasarawa state.
Recall that terrorists on Wednesday attacked the Kuje medium custodial center and freed over 800 inmates including members of the Boko Haram and Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP).
Following the jailbreak, the Federal Government on Friday declared that 64 of the inmates who had terror-related charges wanted with their names and other details published.
The Nasarawa State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ramhan Nansel said the Boko Haram escapee was captured in the early hours of Saturday.
“The Commissioner of Police, CP Adesina Soyemi has ordered for the transfer of the suspect to a safer location while an intensive search for other escapees and handing over process of the arrested inmate progresses.
“The Commissioner of Police, however, appreciated the efforts of the Police operatives for a job well done and assured members of the public of the Command’s unrelenting efforts at making the public space safer for all”.
The Federal Government has launched a manhunt for the remaining fleeing terrorists who escaped after the Kuje correctional center jailbreak.
