Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, have arrested one of the wanted terror suspects who escaped from the Medium Security Correctional Centre, Kuje, following an attack on the facility by insurgents last week in Abuja.

A statement signed by the Director, Media & Advocacy of the agency, Femi Babafemi, said the fleeing terror suspect, Suleiman Sidi, was arrested in the early hours of Monday, July 11th, at Area 1 motor park, in the Federal Capital Territory, while attempting to board a commercial vehicle to Maiduguri, Borno state. When he was searched, three wraps of cannabis sativa were found on him.

During the preliminary interview, the wanted terror suspect confirmed he was remanded at the Kuje Correctional Centre for terrorism and robbery charges, adding that he was indeed one of the inmates who escaped from the facility last Tuesday. 


While commending the officers and men of the FCT Command of the Agency for the arrest and their vigilance, the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Retd) has directed that the wanted suspect should be immediately handed over to the Nigerian Correctional Service, NCOs.
