Others are IP Fassan Akin; SPAs Daka James; Adamu Luka; SPA Zakari Yunasa ; PAs Asnamal Samuel, Ejegwa Patrick, Isah Ibrahim and Ngede Salifu
The statement read: “The suspension was sequel to the outcome of the preliminary investigation into the incident and in consonance with Prisons Service Rules 030406 (2008) Revised Version; the officers were suspended from duty to allow for unhindered trial process.
“The commissioned officers among them are to be served with letters of query while the junior staff will be given Form 96 (Charge Sheet ) to explain their role in the unfortunate saga.
“Meanwhile, efforts to recapture the fleeing prisoners in collaboration with sisters security agencies are on-going.
“This is in addition to tightening security measures in prison formations nationwide to forestall a repeat of such incident”, it said.
The statement tasked members of the public to volunteer useful information that could assist in the re-arrest of the fleeing criminals.
