Abdulazak Isa, 27, a prison escapee from Kuje who was serving a life sentence for the murder of an Indian national, has been paraded by the Police Intelligence Response Squad (IRT).
The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, led the suspect through Bauchi beside the assailants of a Divisional Police Officer.
The 27-year-old Isa, an Ondo State native who was born and raised in Bauchi State, was arrested in Tarfa local government area of Kaduna State for stealing an iPad and a cellphone, Adejobi said newsmen during the briefing, which was held at the FIB-IRT Headquarters.
Adejobi told newsmen during the briefing, which took place at the FIB-IRT Headquarters that, the 27-year-old Isa, an indigene of Ondo State who was born and brought up in Bauchi State was arrested at Tarfa local government area of Kaduna State for stealing an Ipad and a computer monitor from a hotel, in Sabon Wuse, Niger State.
“He afterwards sold the monitor to one Taofik Salau at the sum of 5,000 naira and the Ipad to one Ladan for the sum of N10,000,” Adejobi said.
“In the course of investigation, Police Operatives discovered that he was an escapee from the Kuje jailbreak in June, 2022. He was initially convicted to life imprisonment for the murder of one Indian nationale in 2013 and has spent 10 years prior to his excape from the detention facility in Kuje.”
“The two of them were having issues. Isaac Mories, my colleague was serving the other Indian man who was junior to my boss. One day, Isaacs came to me that I should help him to kill my boss. I say no, I will go and report him to the police, so he left.
“The following day, he brought a drink for me and after taking that drink, I couldn’t remember anything again. Until one day in the evening, around 7:30 p.m, Isaac came to my boss’s office and stopped him while I went to prepare tea for him.
“We had already agreed to carry out the murder before. He promised to give me 30, 000, but up till now he hasn’t given me. He collected N100,000 from his boss who was dragging position with my boss to commit the murder. We were arrested and put in jail, but the Indian man who contracted us to carry out the act was granted bail.
“But me and Isaac were charged to court and convicted to life imprisonment in Kuje. We were there until when Boko Haram people came and free us.”
