The federal government of Nigeria has released the list of terrorists who escaped from the Kuje Medium Correctional Center in Abuja following Tuesday’s daring attack on the facility.

As earlier reported by Leakblast.com, the government disclosed the bio-data and photos of the terrorists who escaped from the Kuje Medium Correctional Center in Abuja and declared them wanted.

According to the information made available to newsmen by the Public Relations Officer of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Abubakar Umar, the escapees are members of the Boko Haram terrorist group.

He urged members of the public with useful information that can lead to the re-arrest of the fleeing inmates to contact the closest security agency.
