A condemned prisoner and Nigerian actress, Rabi Ismail, who escaped from lawful custody in Hadejia prison on 16th December 2011 has been recaptured by the Intelligent Unit of the Nigeria Prisons Service and men of the Department of State Services (DSS).
Prisons spokesman, Francis Enobore, in a statement on Tuesday, said the prisoner was sentenced to death by hanging for culpable homicide by a High Court in Kano on the 5th of January, 2005.
“She was subsequently held in Kaduna Central prison from where she was transferred to Hadejia prison before she escaped about 6 years ago”, he said.
The statement appealed to members of the public to continue to provide useful information on escapees and indeed any criminal element in their midst to security agents, noting that such outlaws pose security threat to the society.
Nigerian Prisons assured that security measures had been strengthened to prevent persons in prison custody from escaping and that escapees still at large will be fished out.
