The terrorist attack on the Kuje Medium Security Prison, Abuja, on Tuesday night resulted in the death of an officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and four inmates.

The name of the official? Iliya Ibrahim Achukwu, an Inspector of Corps (IC).

FIJ understands that Iliya was the first contact of the terrorists when they arrived at the prison and he confronted them, killing two of the invaders before being gunned down. Sources told FIJ that while Iliya battled the terrorists, other security agents fled to safety.

FIJ earlier reported how the scores of terrorists who raided the prison had so much free time on their hands that they first delivered a 15-minute Quranic lecture to inmates before setting them free.

FIJ also reported how the terrorists made an attempt on the life of Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) and former head of the Inspector General of Police’s Intelligence Response Team (IRT), but failed.
