The police command in Adamawa says it arrested two inmates who escaped from Kuje Prison in July 2022.
Suleiman Nguroje, the command’s spokesman, announced this in a statement on Monday.
The two suspects, identified as Atiku Ibrahim, 37, and Adamu Ibrahim, 40, were arrested by police crack squad on May 19, according to the statement.
“The escaped suspects were arrested for cattle rustling and other nefarious activities. During interrogation, they confessed to have been in Kuje correctional custody since 2021, following allegations of arms dealing against them,” said the police command.
It added, “They also confessed to have escaped to Adamawa until their arrest. They further stated that they were awaiting trial in Kuje in a case of arms dealing and unlawful possession of firearms.”
The police commissioner, Afolabi Babatola, directed that the escapees be handed over to the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS) in Adamawa.
