Nigeria: authorities publish names and photos of 69 fugitive Islamists

Prison authorities in Nigeria published names and photos of 69 suspected militants who recently escaped from a prison in the capital, Abuja.

It comes after a deadly attack on Tuesday at Kuje Correctional Center in which more than 800 inmates escaped, half of whom were recaptured.

However, authorities say they are particularly worried about 69 of those who remain at large.

“They have links with the jihadist group Boko Haram or other terrorism-related cases,” according to the authorities.

Authorities urge the public to contact them for any information that may help find them.
