Written by on August 22, 2019

Enugu State Police Command says it has re-arrested Gideon Balogun, a prisoner that escaped from the Nigerian Correctional Service in Enugu State in 2017.

The command’s Public Relations Officer, Superintendent of Police Ebere Amaraizu, in a statement on Thursday said Balogun, who hailed from Edo State, was re-arrested on August 21, in Emene, an outskirt of Enugu metropolis.

He revealed that the suspect, a former inmate of Enugu State Prison, had been on the wanted list of the NCS in Enugu State.

“Police operatives of Emene Division in the early hours of Wednesday re-arrested the wanted suspect while attempting to steal shafts from a mechanic workshop located in Emene, along Enugu-Abakiliki Road,’’ the police spokesman said.

Amaraizu said that the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Suleiman Balarabe, has directed for a full-scale investigation into the alleged nefarious activities of the suspect and to arraign him in court.
