NCoS Releases Names of Suleja Prison Escapees

The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) has released the names and photos of inmates who escaped from the Medium Security Custodial Centre in Suleja, Niger State.

On April 24, heavy rainfall damaged the walls of the Suleja prison, leading to the escape of 118 inmates.

Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, the Minister of Interior, explained that the walls of the Suleja prison were old and needed maintenance. He assured that the federal government would take measures to prevent similar incidents in the future.

“Obviously, we can see the walls are actually old. Unfortunately, there are certain responsibilities that we must deal with,” the minister said.

Recently, NCoS spokesperson Abubakar Umar announced that 23 of the escaped inmates had been recaptured. As of June 15, NCoS has published the names of 18 remaining escapees on its website.

The names of the escaped inmates are: Ogbonna Kingsley, Auwal Mohammed, Mustapha Ibrahim, Suleiman Sani, Raphael Kelly, Abdullahi Babangida, Idris Bashir, Umar Mustapha, Ayuba Obedience, and Lamido Gambo.

Others include Garba Fidelis, Mohammed Jibrin, Sylvester Allison, Albert Israel, Edoga Okwudili, Olaiya Stephen, Ibrahim Aminu, and Audo Usman.
