The Controller of Prisons, Kogi State Command, Mr Matyns U. Apebende has disclosed that there was neither jail break, nor any escape from any prison in the State.
Apebende Who made this known while reacting to some erroneous impression that two suspects, Kabiru Seidu a.k.a Osama and Nuhu Salisu a.k.a Small escaped from prison in social media some electronic media.
“The attention of Nigeria Prisons Service(NPS) Kogi State has been drawn to a broadcast in some electronic media alleging escape of Kabiru Seidu a.k.a Osama and Nuhu Salisu a.k.a Small from a prison in Kogi State.
“This information is not true as the suspect were never brought to any prison anywhere in Kogi State.
“It should be noted that apart from prisons, other security agencies with power to arrest also maintain detention facilities where suspects ate temporarily kept for processing to court before being taken to prison custody if pronounced.”
He therefore admonished journalists to always verify facts before rushing to the press as not to feed reading public with false information.
