The Nasarawa police command says it has recaptured one inmate that escaped during the recent attack on Kuje correctional centre.
On Tuesday, insurgents attacked the correctional service facility in the federal capital territory (FCT).
Over 900 inmates, including Boko Haram suspects, escaped.
The federal government, on Friday, released the names and photos of the fleeing inmates.
In a statement by Ramhan Nansel, spokesman of the Nasarawa police command, the inmate was arrested by the police personnel of the Keffi division following intelligence.
“On July 9, 2022, at about 1:30 am, one Hassan Hassan ‘M’ whose name and picture was amongst the escapees with Boko Haram/Terrorism Case was recaptured by the Police operatives of the Nasarawa State Police Command at Keffi,” Nansel said.
“The CP has ordered for the transfer of the suspect to a safer location while the intensive search for other escapees continues.
“The fugitive will be handed over to the appropriate authority for further action.”
He said the CP expressed gratitude to the police personnel in the state for their efforts and “job well done”.
He added that the CP appealed to members of the public to help with useful information on others still on the run.
