Peter Nwachukwu reportedly escapes

The Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS) on Tuesday has said that Peter Nwachukwu, the husband of the late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu, is still in their custody.

The Service dismissed reports that Nwachukwu escaped with Boko Haram insurgents and other inmates declared missing when the Kuje Medium Custodial Centre was attacked last Tuesday.

It should be recalled that a High Court in Abuja on June 3 remanded Nwachukwu at the Kuje Correctional facility, pending the hearing and determination of the homicide-related suit against him by the Attorney General of the Federation.
