64 Boko Haram inmates break jail in Nigeria, head towards Ghana – GIS

Boko Haram suspects

Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has issued an urgent statement on some sixty-four (64) Boko Haram inmates who broke jail in Nigeria.

According to the Ghana Immigration Service, Nigeria recorded another jail break at the Kuje Maximum Security Prison in Abuja on Wednesday night 6 July, 2022.

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 Jihadists 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.


Ghana Immigration Service said,  considering current migration trends of Nigerians within the sub-region, it is likely most of
the escapees will attempt to enter Ghana through both approved and unapproved routes.

In view of the above, Management of Ghana Immigration Service has directed all Regional and Sector commanders to institute stringent measures at all Points of Entry and intensity patrols to deter and intercept all escapees who will attempt to infiltrate the country.
