An escapee from the Kuje Correctional Centre in June 2022, one Abdulrazak Isah (27), has been arrested at Tafa Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Isah, an indigene of Ondo State, was arrested by the operatives of the Force Intelligence Bureau Intelligence Response Team (FIB-IRT) for stealing an iPad and a computer monitor from a hotel in Sabon Wuse, Niger State.

The suspect sold the monitor for the sum of N5,000 and the iPad for the sum of N10,000, before his arrest.

Isah, who was convicted to life imprisonment for murder in 2013, had spent 10 years prior to his escape from the detention facility, according to Force spokesman, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi.

Also, the operatives have arrested 11 undergraduates.

The 11 suspects who confessed to being members of an unlawful society, specifically the Black Axe Confraternity (aka Aiye) were arrested in Ekpoma, Edo State, following reports on their nefarious activities within the area.

The suspects – Okosun Pascal (22), Michael Ehineboh (24), Aneto Israel (22), Destiny Uhomogiwan (23), Bello Sunday (20), Eramoh Akhere (27), Osagie Adamson (22), Okoruwa Christian (24), Edoghogho Wellington (all 9 from Esan LGA of Edo State), Momoh Kingsley (20) from Estako West LGA of Edo State, and Chukwu Chukwuemeka (24) from Nkanu West LGA of Enugu State, are all university undergraduates.

Exhibits recovered from the suspects are 2 AK 47 Rifles, 3 pump action guns, 1 locally made pistol, 2 AK47 Magazines, 22 live rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, 17 rounds of 5.56mm K2 Ammunition, and 3 live cartridges.

The operatives also apprehended the trio of Murtala Ibrahim (37), Suleiman Rabiu (28), and Surajo Sani (aka Mandula) aged 39, for kidnapping and providing information to other notorious kidnap gangs on likely victims of their crime.

The suspects who operate within Yankwani and Kurami Towns in Bakori LGA of Katsina State carried out the kidnap of a man, his wife and two children from whom they obtained a ransom of N30 million.

The FIB-IRT recovered a total of 27 firearms including 10 AK rifles, 1 G3 rifle, 8 pump action guns, 3 locally made pistols, 3 English double-barrelled guns, 633 rounds of live ammunition of different calibres, 8 expended cartridges, and one cutlass from the suspects in the course of investigations.

The Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has assured well-meaning members of the society who are stakeholders in security, of the commitment of the Nigeria Police Force to ensuring that all criminal suspects are dealt the full blow of the law upon arrest.

All the suspects will be arraigned in court on completion of investigations.
