The Nasarawa State Police Command on Saturday said it has recaptured one of the Boko Haram suspects, Hassan Hassan, who escaped following the attack on Kuje Maximum Custodial Centre recently.
This was disclosed in a statement by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Nasarawa State Command, DSP Ramhan Nansel.
The statement noted that the fleeing Boko Haram suspect was recaptured by the eagle-eyed operatives of the state police command at Keffi, headquarters of Keffi Local Goverment Area of the state.
Nansel said “the State Commissioner of Police, CP Adesina Soyemi, has ordered for the transfer of the suspect to a safer location, while intensive search for other escapees and handing over process of the arrested inmate progresses.”
He said the state Commissioner of Police appreciated the efforts of the police operatives for a job well done.
“CP Soyemi therefore assured members of the public of the command’s unrelenting efforts at making the public space safer for all in the state,” Nansel said.
