One of the high-profile Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists, Idris Ojo who escaped from Kuje Prison in Ondo State, has been rearrested by the Defence Headquarters. Lucky Irabor, Chief of Defence Staff, said this on Tuesday at a media conference in Abuja.  On July 5, gunmen attacked the Kuje correctional centre in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and freed over 500 inmates, including suspected Boko Haram terrorists.

“Starting with the Owo church attack, it is my pleasure to let you know that we have arrested those behind that dastardly act,” he said.  “On August 7, one Idris Ojo (37) was apprehended at Aiyetorosi in Ondo State. He was one of the high-profile Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) members that escaped from Kuje Prison.

“He was arrested along with one Jimoh Ibrahim, a 39-year-old criminal. Ojo was not done with all the criminal activities which he undertook in the past, he was also planning other deadly attacks and he was perfecting those plans along with his cronies before he was captured.

“Again, on August 4, the military in a combined operation with the Department of State Service (DSS) arrested four terrorists at Eika in Okehi Local Government Area of Kogi State.
 “Others are Idris Abdulmalik Omeiza, otherwise known as Ibn Malik; Momoh Abubakar, Aliyu Itopa and Auwal Onimisi.

“Now, Omeiza is one of the masterminds of the June 5 Catholic Church attack in Owo as well as the attack on the police station in Adavi also in Kogi State that led to the killing of a policeman as well as weapons being carried away.”
