The Nigerian military has deployed its personnel to mount roadblocks in some major locations across Abuja over the recently escaped prisoners from the Kuje detention facility.
The situation on Abuja road has been overwhelmed with gridlock as security operatives carry out thorough checks at the roadblocks mounted by soldiers stationed opposite Mogadishu Barracks in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
Recall that hundreds of inmates including Boko Haram members who were imprisoned in the recently attacked Kuje correctional facility were freed by the terrorist group identified as the Islamic State in West African Province (ISWAP).
The Nigerian security operatives comprising the Nigerian army, police, and the local vigilante group have captured more than 100 escaped inmates but more prisoners are missing from the Kuje correctional facility in Abuja.
A prime Boko Haram member suspected to be involved in the United Nations bombing in Abuja was among the inmates who escaped the Kuje prison facility after the ISWAP invasion occurred.
