The Ghanaian security forces have heightened security along its borders following the jailbreak of some 443 inmates from the Kuje Maximum Security Prison in Abuja, Nigeria on Wednesday, 6 July 2022, local media reports.

Reports have it that, the fugitives were among 879 inmates freed by jihadist group Boko Haram. Sixty-four of the fugitives are linked to the terrorist group.

In a memo to all its commands, the Ghana Immigration Service said: “Official reports indicate at least 443 out of 879 inmates that escaped as a result of the break are still on the run.


It is believed that the Jihadist group Boko Haram are behind the attack which saw the use of high-end explosives and guns that freed all 64 Boko Haram-linked inmates at the prison and are among the escapees who are still on the run.”

“In view of the above, I am directed to inform you to institute stringent measures at all points of entry and intensify patrols to deter and intercept all escapees who will attempt to infiltrate the country,” the memo said.

According to reports, the inmates wanted to take advantage of the #EndSARS protest and enforced curfew in the state to stage a jailbreak; however they met stiff resistance by the personnel at the centre.
