Abuja – The 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.

In a statement on Monday by NDLEA’s Director, Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi said, the fleeing terror suspect, Suleiman Sidi, was arrested in the early hours of Monday 11th July 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 a 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,” the statement added.

While commending the officers and men of the FCT Command of the Agency for the arrest and their vigilance, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer NDLEA, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa has directed that the wanted suspect be immediately handed over to the Nigerian Correctional Service.
