NCoS debunks report of Peter Nwachukwu’s escape from Kuje prison

The Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS) has dismissed report that Peter Nwachukwu, husband of the late gospel singer, Osinachi, escaped after Kuje prison was attacked by suspected terrorists days ago.

Public Relations Officer of the Service, Umar Abubakar said on Tuesday July 12, that there's no iota of truth in the report.

He told The Nation: ”I was with him in the morning because we had to check out the profiles of escapees again, again and reconcile with those recaptured.

“There was no way high profile inmates would escape because where would they run to, and where would they hide?

“I even asked my FCT Public Relations Officer, Humphrey Chukwuendo when I saw the report that why is it that some people just sit down and concoct unverified reports. I think it is time we take steps to address this issue “.
