At the detention centre located in the premises of the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) of the Nigeria Police at Area 10, Garki, Abuja, are 89 high-profile suspects made up of key Boko Haram kingpins and others. It was here that a suspect was alleged to have escaped a few days ago.

A security source told Saturday Tribune on Friday that among the 89 prime suspects were two females but could not confirm their link with the sect, just as he hinted at inter-agency rivalry between the police and another security agency as the source of current controversies over the reported escape of a key Boko Haram suspect from police custody.

While the police insisted on Friday that no suspect named Sani Mohammed escaped from its custody, sources in another security agency maintained that a suspect by that name indeed escaped during last Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.

Mba has, however, urged members of the public and the international community to disregard the escape story, which he described as untrue.

He noted that the task of defending the nation’s democracy is a collective one, and urged the people to “desist from using the media to spread false information capable of creating panic.”

On the perceived delay in the prosecution of the terror suspects, Mba explained that investigation and prosecution of this type of crime take time.
