Suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari has relived his experience during the attack on the Kogi Medium Security Prison in Abuja, where he was detained. Insurgents who have now been revealed to be ISWAP, breached the correctional facility on Tuesday night and freed hundreds of inmates including 64 Boko Haram members. A prison source told SaharaReporters that Kyari, who is standing trial for alleged drug trafficking was later relocated to a safe zone by the authorities.
Vanguard reports that he shared his ordeal from his current location and said that God saved him as well as other high profile inmates like Farouk Lawan and ex-governor of Taraba state, Jolly Nyame.

He said; ‘’Only God saved us today (yesterday). For over two hours and 45 minutes, more than 300 terrorist took over the Kuje prison in Abuja with GPMGs, Bombs, RPGs, Many Rifles etc. ‘’The total population of the Kuje Prison inmates is about 1,476, and only 111 of the inmates refused to escape and decided to remain in the prison as 90 per cent escaped.
