Residents of the Federal Capital Territory, or FCT, Abuja, and its neighboring states are in a palpable state of tension as a result of the escape of over 800 prisoners from Kuje prison, the nation's top correctional facility.



According to Naijacrawl, a large group of terrorists believed to be Boko Haram militants stormed the facility on Tuesday night with explosives and other lethal weapons, freeing all of their members and other criminals in the process.

Stakeholders have continued to respond to the occurrence and have voiced amazement at the severity of the security issue in the nation.

While some Nigerians blame the tragedy on President Muhammadu Buhari's administration's inability to address the security threat plaguing the country, others think it was planned by dishonest citizens hoping to undermine Buhari's rule.

Bashir Magashi, the minister of defense, responded to the terrible situation by unequivocally stating that none of the Boko Haram suspects held in the facility were discovered following the attack.

According to a source from the Nigerian Prison Service who talked to our correspondent under the condition of anonymity, some previously convicted Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists are among the fugitive prisoners.

She claimed that some of the escaped prisoners were terrorist commanders who had been apprehended and tried by the Nigerian Army.

According to Naijacrawl, the development takes place as the FCT deals with its worst security scenario ever.

In the region, there have been numerous kidnappings, murders, ritual killings, and other criminal acts.
