Kidnapping Kingpin and gunrunner in Nigeria’s North Eastern state of Taraba, Hamisu Wadume who was arrested and detained in connection with the killing of 3 Police IRT operatives in a Special Operation led by DCP Abba Kyari, has been identified as one of the inmates who escaped during Tuesday night attack on Kuje prison by terrorists, security sources have confirmed.

Wadume, who has been in custody at Kuje prison since 2020, has not been found and was not among prisoners recaptured or those who voluntarily turned themselves in following the Kuje prison attack.

Hamisu Wadume, was arrested by IRT operatives in Takum, Taraba for terrorising people of the state with his criminal activities.

But the IRT operatives came under heavy firing by soldiers of 93 Battalion, Takum, in Taraba state, killing three police officers and one civilian staff in the process on the grounds that they were not properly identifiable and their vehicle had nothing to show they were policemen.

The soldiers who also rescued Wadume, from the IRT operatives were said to have carried out the operations on the orders of their Commanding Officer.

After his rescue by the soldiers, Wadume took to his heels and escaped from Taraba state, eliciting public outrage.

He was later rearrested by the IRT operatives at Kano and brought to Abuja, and charged to court, where he was remanded in prison custody.
