Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has revealed those behind the Kabba prison break in Kogi state.
He claimed it was planned by those trying to undermine and discredit Governor Bello.
Two security operatives were killed when gunmen invaded the Kabba Medium Security Custodial Centre in Kogi State, authorities have said.
Similarly, two officers of the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS), have not been accounted for, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior, Sola Fasure, disclosed in a statement on Monday.
However, Kayode in a tweet via his Twitter account on Monday, said the prison break and murder of security men in Kogi was contrived.
He further noted that the incident was planned by those trying to undermine and discredit Yahaya Bello, saying it would not work.
He added that those behind it would hear from them soon.
The prison break and murder of security men in Kogi was contrived. It is a similar plot to the EFCC one.
Those behind it need to know that when God is with someone nothing can stop him.
Trying to undermine & discredit Yahaya cannot work. Those behind it will hear from us soon.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, who affirmed that he had been briefed by the Controller General of the NCoS, Haliru Nababa, described the incident as unfortunate.
Giving more details regarding the event, Aregbesola explained that security officers – comprising 15 soldiers, 10 police officers, and 10 armed guards of the NCoS – on duty “fought gallantly” to repel the attack.
Regrettably, two officers of the correctional service are yet to be accounted for while one soldier and a policeman lost their lives during the attack.
The Kabba Custodial facility had 294 inmates as of the time of the attack, many of whom escaped after the gunmen used explosives to destroy three sides of the perimeter fence.
