The Public Relations Officer of the Nigerian Prison Service (NPS), Mr. Francis Eonbore, on Saturday told THISDAY that there was no jail-break at the Kuje prison, on the outskirt of Abuja, Federal Capital Territory (FCT)

Speaking on telephone with our reporter, he said what is going round town that there was a jail break was a rumour, adding: “As I speak with you, we don’t have any information that Charles Okay has escaped from detention.

“I will get back to you as soon as I get to Kuje with the facts and proper confirmation of what transpired. There was however no jail break”

An online medium had reported that Okah, a high profile suspect of the 2010 October bombing in Abuja, had escaped from the prison.
