Charles Okah Still in Kuje Prison

The rumoured jailbreak at Kuje Prison, Abuja, on Friday night, which it was reported that the mastermind of the 2010 Independence Day bombings, Charles Okah, had escaped, is a fluke after all.
It was gathered tha Okah did not escape from the prison.
The Nigerian Prisons Service told journalists, Saturday morning, that Okah is intact in the prison.
The media had been abuzz that there was a jailbreak at the Kuje prisons, Abuja, late Friday night. And that many inmates had escaped, including, Okah who is facing trial for terrorism.
“It is not true”, the spokesperson for the Nigerian Prisons Service, Francis Enobore, said.
He was responding to reports that Okah scaled the prison’s wall and fled on Friday night.
“He is there (Kuje prison) hale and hearty.
“The comptroller of prisons in charge of the FCT was there less than 30 minutes ago and he saw him there. I spoke to the controller”, he said.
Enobore however admitted that there was an “incident” at the prison on Friday night.
“Yes there was an incident yesterday, but Henry Okah was not involved.
“The Comptoller of prisons has ordered an investigation and that is going on. We want to know if anybody escaped and if yes, what are their identities.”
