ISWAP Claims Responsibility For Kuje Prison Attack As They Release Video

The attack on the Kuje Correctional Center on Tuesday in Abuja, the nation’s capital, was carried out by a Boko Haram faction backed by the Islamic State known as the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP).
On Tuesday, SaharaReporters reported that armed men were pursuing the facility.

One of the sources claims that the terrorists entered the building around 9:05 pm and remained there until 1:30 am on Wednesday.

He added that over 800 inmates including terrorists escaped during the attack by gunmen.

ISWAP in a video released on Wednesday claimed responsibility for the attack.

In the video, the terrorist sect showed some of its men shooting their way into the facility.

The claim comes a few days after ISWAP said its fighters killed a policeman in Suleja, Niger State.

Suleja is less than 20 kilometres away from the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

According to the group, the attack was carried out by “soldiers of the caliphate” with automatic weapons.
