Some Nigerian politicians and high-profile inmates at the Kuje Medium Correctional Centre are still missing after yesterday’s attack.

According to reports, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, former Plateau Governor Joshua Dariye and his Taraba counterpart Jolly Nyame are no where to be found since the attack.

Recall that heavily armed gunmen had invaded the correctional center around 10.30 pm on Tuesday night.

The gunmen who bombarded the facility and successfully operated for about one hour unhindered reportedly freed Boko Haram inmates at the correctional centre.

It was gathered that other inmates used the opportunity of the attack to escape from the Kuje Prison.

Sources said that a Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, and his men who were in the facility may have escaped from the facility.

Kyari, who was remanded in prison earlier this year, is standing trial for allegedly dealing in cocaine alongside four members of his former police unit and two other persons arrested at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu.
