A top official of the sect said his group was responsible for the Wednesday jail break which led to the escape of 119 inmates at the prisons.

 

“We staged the operation in Kogi to rescue seven of our members incarcerated there and Allah made it possible for the operation to be successful,” Abul Qaqa, the spokesman of the sect said.

Speaking during a brief telephone chat with journalists in Maiduguri, Qaqa said, “our members are safely in one of our camps now after we freed them from prison.”

The spokesman did not give details on the identity of the freed members as well as where and when they were arrested.

Weekly Trust reports that though Boko Haram has launched assaults in many northern states including Borno, Yobe, Bauchi, Gombe, Adamawa, Kano, Kaduna as well as the FCT, the group has never claimed responsibility for any attack in Kogi State.

Meanwhile, the Niger State police command Thursday arrested nine suspected escapees from the Koton Karfe jail break along Lapai/Gulu road.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Richard Oguche said the police with the help of a vigilante group arrested the first five suspected escapees while on their way to Abuja.

According to him, the suspected criminals, who were serving various jail terms for different offences, also committed several armed robbery crimes on their way before their arrest by the police.
