It an alleged desperate attempt to cover
up what has been described as attempted prison’s break, the Nigeria
Prisons Service has on Saturday reacted to reports that high profile
kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike alias Evans plotted to escape prison
recall that It was widely reported that Evans had allegedly offered a
$100,000 dollars to one of the guards stationed at his prison cell in
Kirikiri maximum prison to organize his escape.
However is a move to douse tense as
noted by some sources, Public relations officer of the Nigerian prisons,
Francis Enobare told journalists at the KiriKiri medium security
prisons, Lagos command, Apapa that the reports were ‘false’.
It is not true that Evans plotted to escape from our custody. He is in high spirit and he sees his lawyers as he wants.
”He has never plotted
to escape since we took custody of him. The security around him is very
tight; all our prisons are well fortified.”
But a high profile source alleged that the escape plot was true that ” nearly torn Kirikiri prison apart.”
