ISWAP Claims Responsibility For Kuje Prison Attack, Frees Kaduna Train Attack Masterminds

The Islamic State West Africa Province has claimed responsibility for the attack on Kuje Prison in a 30-second video which showed the gunmen setting ablaze vehicles parked in the facility.

Recall that terrorists had on Tuesday night bombed the Kuje Medium Security Custodial Centre, Abuja, which was being guarded by dozens of soldiers, Department of State operatives, police officers and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps personnel.

During the attack, the terrorists released 600 inmates, including 15 deadly Boko Haram commanders who masterminded the March 28 attack on the Kaduna-Abuja train at Katari, Kaduna, in which eight persons were killed and over 68 passengers kidnapped.
