Condemned female convict recaptured after 5 years of escape

The intelligence unit of the Nigerian Prisons Service, in collaboration with men of the State Security Service, has recaptured a condemned prisoner, k/22c Rabi Ismail, who escaped from lawful custody in Hadejia Prison on 16th December, 2011.

Spokesperson of the Service, Francis Enobore, in a statement noted that, the Prisoner k/22c Rabi Ismail was sentenced to death by hanging for culpable homicide by a High Court in Kano, on the 5th of January, 2005; adding that, she was subsequently held in Kaduna Central Prison from where she was transferred to Hadejia Prison before her escape.

While appreciating the assistance rendered by security agencies, particularly men of the DSS and the Police in arresting the fugitive, the Service also appealed to members of the public to continue to provide useful information on escapees or any criminal elements around them, noting that security measures have been strengthened to prevent persons in prison custody from escaping.
