Kuje Prison Jailbreak: NDLEA arrests wanted terror suspect with drug in Abuja

Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) have arrested Suleiman Idi one of the wanted Boko Haram Terror suspects who escaped from the Medium Security Correctional Centre, Kuje.

His arrest took place following an attack on the facility by insurgents last week in Abuja.

Suleiman Idi was arrested in the early hours of Monday 11th July at Area 1 motor park, in the Federal Capital Territory while attempting to board a commercial vehicle to Maiduguri, Borno state.

When he was searched, three wraps of cannabis Sativa were found on him.

According to the NDLEA, during the preliminary interview, the wanted terror suspect confirmed he was remanded at the Kuje Correctional Centre for terrorism and robbery charges, adding that he was indeed one of the inmates who escaped from the facility last Tuesday.

Commending the officers and men of the FCT Command of the Agency for the arrest and their vigilance, the Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) has directed that the wanted suspect should be immediately handed over to the Nigerian Correctional Service, NCoS.
