ISWAP Claims Responsibility of Kuje Prison Attack

The attack on the Kuje Correctional Center on Tuesday in Abuja, the nation’s capital, was carried out by a Boko Haram cell backed by the Islamic State known as the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP).

The building was attacked by terrorists on Tuesday.

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

He further mentioned that during the onslaught by gunmen, approximately 800 prisoners, including terrorists, escaped.

In a video made public on Wednesday, ISWAP claimed accountability for the assault.

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.
