Lawyer: Abba Kyari safe in Kuje prison, didn’t escape

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari did not escape from Kuje correctional facility like other terrorists, who escaped on Tuesday night.

The centre came under heavy attacks on Tuesday by 10:30pm by many terrorists who set free many of prisoners.

However, officials of the prison said Kyari was “attacked by the terrorist who threatened him 3 months earlier in Kuje Prison. 2 of the terrorist Commanders that threatened him carried over 30 of the terrorists invaders and attacked where Abba Kyari was hiding,” Kyari’s lawyer, Ibrahim Usman, who rushed to the centre told journalists.

He revealed that the terrorists “kept shouting his name, ‘Abba Kyari, you are dead, we will kill you now’. They fired over 200 rounds of ammunition and threw 2 bombs which by God’s grace refused to explode. It’s God that saved Kyari today. Had it been those bombs exploded, Kyari will have been history by now,” Usman said.

He pointed out that, “After the almost three hours attack, the terrorist left. Kyari and his men had the opportunity to follow the crowd that were escaping en mass after the terrorist had rescued their members and left.
