Alleged Release Of 101 B’Haram Terrorists  Causes A Stir

Kirikiri Maximum Prison
A total of 101 suspected Boko Haram terrorists are said to have been released from the Kirikiri Medium Security Prison in Lagos State.

According to the Foundation for Investigative Journalism, wardens at the facility let them out as part of a swap deal for the release of travellers kidnapped on March 28 in Kaduna.

According to the source, the freed suspects had been awaiting trial since 2009, and they were aware of the Kuje jailbreak before it occurred.

“They secretly released 101 Boko Haram suspects around 6 am. The negotiations had been going on for several months. We used to pray as a group. They spoke Hausa during prayers and told me they’d be home by October.

“Early (yesterday) Saturday morning, they owned the cell door and called them out. They had returned their properties already. I used to speak with one Adamu in G3 cell. He is no longer here. He is tall and slim and has a long face.

“They told me that their release was based on negotiations and the pressure their sponsors gave Buhari. They felt if they didn’t get released before a new president, who might not be their tribesman, took the seat, they might not be granted amnesty,” the source said.

However, Director of defence information, Major General Jimmy Akpor, told LEADERSHIP in Abuja yesterday that there was no swap deal, adding that elements of national power, both kinetic and non-kinetic, were deployed to secure the release of the train passengers.

Major General Akpor when contacted, said; “Whatever we know we have told you, it was a high powered committee that was set up so whoever is saying that is on his own. Like I told, you the nation is a powerful entity that has so many elements of national power to achieve national objectives.

“There is diplomacy, of course the military is one for kinetic activities, there is economic, even the population is part of the elements of national power. Whatever they want to believe, let them believe, the most important thing is that hostages have been freed.

“Whoever is insinuating anything to the contrary is on his own. The nation has carried out its responsibility towards those that were held captive. Whoever wants to insinuate anything let him do and of what use is that to the nation, of what use is that to the national psyche?”

“According to sources, the inmates allegedly released are:
