The Minister of Interior General Abdulraman Dambazau has blamed the recent jailbreak at the Kuje medium facility prisons on security lapses.

General Dambazau said this when he visited the place on Tuesday in Abuja and warned that those found negligent of their duties will be brought to book.

The minister said he had noticed such lapses and warned about it sometimes ago and now that it had happened, those who are negligent would be sanctioned.

Two prisoners escaped from the prison last week with the insnuation that the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra and founder of Biafra Radio, Nnamdi Kanu was also trying to escape.

But he had since denied the allegation, saying he did not need to break jail to get freedom.
