…The OPSH Special Forces have made two rearrests of escaped criminals
The Special Forces named Operation Safe Haven (OPSH) drafted to work at Bisich Area Command of Barkin Ladi in Plateau have recaptured an escaped criminal, Mallam Adam Yusuf.
Yusuf was one of the six dreaded prisoners that escaped at High Court Barkin Ladi on July 23, 2020 when armed herdsmen attacked to free the convicts.
The OPSH Commander, Major Gen. Chukwuemeka Okonkwo revealed that Yusuf was rearrested in an inhabited building at Bisichi Village of Barking Ladi Plateau State around 3:30 PM on August 18, 2020.
While the efforts are in progress to recapture all escapees, Okonkwo said Yusuf confessed he was one of the escaped criminals.
His rearrest made it the second one as OPSH had rearrested Mallam Mohammed Ibrahim which was also of the escaped prisoners.
The Commander of OPSH has appealed to the public to be generous in offering useful information that would help in the rearrest of all the criminals in order to sanitise the community.
He also said that Yusuf has been handed over to Nigerian Correctional Services in Plateau State.
