Names of 18 inmates who escape from Niger prison released [Full list]

The Nigerian Correctional Service has released the names of 18 inmates who fled from the Suleja Medium Security Custodial Centre in Niger State.

The escape of the prisoners has raised significant security concerns.

The released database includes information about the inmates, which is expected to help law enforcement officers and the public in identifying and locating the fugitives.

A total of 119 inmates escaped from the Suleja Medium Security Custodial Centre, Niger State on April 24, 2024.

The incident, triggered by a relentless downpour that caused significant damage to the facility, resulted in a breach of the perimeter fence, allowing inmates to escape.

While 10 inmates were re-apprehended the next day, three more were captured later that same day.

On June 6, 2024, the NCoS Spokesperson, Abubakar Umar, confirmed that 23 escapees had been recaptured so far.

Checks on the website of NCoS on Saturday afternoon, June 15, 2024, showed that the details of only 18 out of the 96 fleeing inmates have been published.

The names of the fleeing inmates published include; Ogbonna Kingsley, Auwal Mohammed, Mustapha Ibrahim, Suleiman Sani, Raphael Kingsley, Abdullahi Babangida, Idris Bashir, Umar Mustapha, and Ayuba Obedience.

Others are Lamido Gambo, Garba Fidelis, Mohammed Jibrin, Sylvester Allison, Albert Israel, Edoga Okwudili, Olaiya Stephen, Audu Usman and Ibrahim Aminu.
