The Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS) has denied that Charles Okah, suspected mastermind of the 2010 Independence Day bombings, has escaped from the Kuje Prisons, Abuja.
It also denied that there was a jailbreak at Kuje, as has been widely reported.
“It is untrue. There was no jailbreak at Kuje prison. I can tell you that authoritatively. There was no jail-break,” Francis Enobore, spokesman of the service told TheCable.
On the reported escape of Okah, he said: “That again is not true. I spoke with the officer in charge of the prison when the news was trending and he told me that Charles Okah is still there hale and hearty. I’m telling you authoritatively that Okah did not escape.”
