Peter Nwachukwu, husband of the late gospel singer, Osinachi has been reported as one of those who escaped during last Tuesday’s terrorists’ attack on the Kuje Correctional Centre in Abuja, the country’s capital.
The Eastern Updates recalls that the Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, known as the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) in a video which was released last week claimed responsibility for the attack.
The federal government had earlier announced that no fewer than 879 inmates escaped from the facility during the unfortunate attack.
‘A total of 879 inmates escaped from the facility during the unfortunate attack.
‘As at the time of this report, 443 have been recaptured, 551 inmates are currently in custody, 4 inmates dead and 16 inmates sustained various degrees of injuries and are being treated at the moment.
