The fugitive was arrested by the Intelligence Unit of the Nigerian Prisons Service with the support of men of the Department of State Services.

Ismail was sentenced to death by hanging for culpable homicide by a High Court in Kano on January 5, 2005.

She was subsequently held in Kaduna Central Prison from where she was transferred to Hadejia prison before she escaped about five years ago, the prison service public relations officer, Francis Enobore, said in a statement on Tuesday.

He expressed the appreciation of the Controller-General of Prisons, Jaa’faru Ahmed, to the DSS and the police for their assistance in recapturing the fugitive.

He 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 posed a security threat to the society.

Enobore said the CG said that security measures had been strengthened to prevent inmates in prison custody from escaping.

“Furthermore, escapees still at large will be fished out of their hidings no matter how long it takes to do so,” he assured.

Buhari not a democrat, must be sacked in 2019 – Atiku averred

Atiku with German Ambassador

POLITICS – Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being undemocratic despite coming to power in 2015 through a democratic process.

Atiku stated this on Thursday when he visited Kogi State delegates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The presidential aspirant noted that Nigerians are presently suffering under the All Progressive Congress-led Federal Government.

He debunked the insinuation that he currently holds grudge against his former boss, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.

“I will continue to express my reservations on the willingness of President Buhari to hand over power. I have a simple and straight explanation for this. When Buhari took over power in 1983, they asked him of his transition to civil rule, then he responded, he doesn’t have.

“My stand is that one, he is not a democrat. Secondly, he is only using democracy to go back to power. If he loses election in 2019, he must hand over power” Atiku averred.

‘Buhari should be brought out to debate us, the media should force them out of hiding’ – Sowore

NYSC member battling for life after soldier's assault in Kaduna camp

A corp member is currently battling for survival after he was allegedly assaulted, yesterday, at the Kaduna State NYSC Orientation Camp (Black Gold Camp).

The corper, set to complete his service next month, had been appointed to the brigade band to train the current corps members. However, at the end of the parade, he excused himself and was planning to leave when a female soldier stopped him and said he couldn’t go.

He allegedly tried to explain to the soldier that he had to leave, as he is not bounded by the camp rules, but the soldier started harassing him. A male soldier later joined his colleague and kicked the corper, who fell and landed awkwardly on his head. The soldier was said to have pulled him up with his belt, raised him high and dropped him, making him faint immediately.

The victim was then rushed to the camp clinic, where preliminary assessment showed that he broke his neck in the process. He was later rushed out of the camp to a clinic and it’s being rumored that he is now between life and death.
