'Charles Okah didn't escape from Kuje Prison' - Prisons Service

The Prison Service dismissed the report but admitted that there was a jailbreak on Friday night.

 

Pulse, citing a report published by Sahara Reporters, had reported that Okah scaled the prison walls on Friday, June 24, around 7.30 pm.

The spokesman to the Prison Service, Francis Enobore, however dismissed the report, but admitted that there was an "incident" believed to be a jailbreak on Friday night.

“It is not true (that he escaped),” he told Premium Times.

“He is there (Kuje prison) hale and hearty. The comptroller of prisons in charge of the FCT was there less than 30 minutes ago and he saw him there. I spoke to the controller.”

Enobore said Okah was not involved in the Friday jailbreak at the Kuje Prison.

“Yes there was an incident yesterday, but Henry Okah was not involved. The Comptoller of prisons has ordered an investigation and that is going on. We want to know if anybody escaped and if yes, what are their identities,” he said.

The spokesman said he would give details upon conclusion of preliminary investigation.
