Kuje: Terrorists Overwhelmed Security With Superior Weapons, Says Minister

The Federal Government, on Friday, said the attack and subsequent jailbreak of the Kuje correctional facility in Abuja was only possible because the terrorists were wielding superior weapons.

The Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammed Dingyadi, disclosed this to State House Correspondents after the National Security Council meeting presided over by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Digyadi noted that although the security personnel on duty that night fought hard to repel the attack and killed some of the terrorists, they could not hold their ground indefinitely because of the superior weaponry of their assailants.

The PUNCH reports that terrorists, on Tuesday night, attacked the Kuje Correctional Centre, freeing over 600 inmates, including hardened Boko Haram elements.
