Mexican President, Enrique Peña Nieto, has announced that notorious drug lord, Joaquin Guzman, popularly known as 'El Chapo' has been captured again.
Word's most notorious drug lord recaptured
He first escaped from a maximum-security prison in 2001 when he reportedly hid in a laundry cart.
The President disclosed this on Twitter on Friday, Jan. 8. "Mission Accomplished. We have him", he wrote.
Guzman has escaped two times from Mexican custody. He first escaped from a maximum-security prison in 2001 when he reportedly hid in a laundry cart.
The second time was in 2014, when he broke out of another maximum-security prison through an underground tunnel.
His last year's breakout sparked criticism about the government of Mexico's ability to safeguard such a notorious criminal.
El chapo is considered the world's most powerful drug lord.
