The Adamawa police command has arrested two inmates who escaped from the Kuje correctional centre in 2022.
In July 2022, gunmen attacked the Kuje correctional centre, leading to the escape of many prisoners, including Boko Haram suspects.
A few of the escapees have been re-arrested in different states.
The command spokesperson, Suleiman Nguroje said the escapees were identified as Atiku Ibrahim and Adamu Ibrahim.
Nguroje said they were arrested by the police crack squad on May 19.
He said, “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.
” 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.”
