The Enugu State Police Command has confirmed the escape of 17 suspects from the cell of the State Criminal Investigation Department,CID, situated in the premises of the State Police Headquarters.

A statement from the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, ASP Daniel Ndukwe said that the suspects escaped Sunday night.

The statement reads; “17 suspects, mostly remanded in Police Custody by the Court for different offences, escaped from the Command’s State CID’s Cell after breaking the Cell keys and resisting efforts of personnel on duty to restrain them.”

He however, said five of the suspects have been re-arrested.

The PPRO noted that the Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmad AbdurRahman has consequently ordered an immediate discreet investigation and intense search to re-arrest the remaining 12 escapees.

The CP has also directed the commencement of investigation to determine the culpability and punishment of any personnel found wanting during the unwarranted incidence.

He further warns that such unbecoming lapses on the part of personnel of the Command will not be tolerated.

The Commissioner has convened an emergency meeting of all Management Team members, Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers, Heads of Departments and directed them to deploy all the Command’s personnel and operational assets to emplace adequate security and ensure hitch-free movements and celebrations during the Christmas and New Year season.

While reassuring commitment to provide adequate security during this festive season, the CP called on residents of the State and the general public to assist the Command with credible information that will lead to the re-arrest of the 12 detainees.

Meanwhile, residents of the State and members of the public have been enjoined to promptly volunteer such information or report any person(s) suspected to be the escapees at the nearest Police Station or by calling the Command’s hotlines on: 08032003702, 08075390883, 08086671202 or 08098880172; or via email on: contact042ppro@gmail.com
