Troops of Operation SAFE HAVEN(OPSH) deployed at BISICHI Area Command of Barkin Ladi Plateau have rearrested another escaped prisoner, Mallam Adam Yusuf.
Yusuf was one of the six notorious inmates that escaped at High Court Barkin Ladi on 23 July 2020, following an ambush by some herdsmen to free the criminals.
The Nation reports OPSH had earlier rearrested Mallam Mohammed Ibrahim, one of the escapees and handed him over to Nigerian Correctional Service Plateau State, bringing the total rearrested into two.
According to OPSH Commander, Maj. Gen. Chukwuemeka Okonkwo, the latest arrest was made in an abandoned house at Bisichi Village of Barkin Ladi Plateau State at about 1530Hrs on 18 August, 2020.
The Commander stated the 19- year- old had confessed to be among the escapees, stressing that concerted efforts were ongoing to rearrest others.
He solicited for relevant information from the public that could lead to the rearrest of the remaining inmates.
He said the rearrested inmate will be handed over to the Nigerian Correctional Service Plateau State Command for necessary actions.
