However, their “freedom” was short-lived as they were re-arrested less than a week after their jailbreak and are currently being detained at the headquarters of the Department of State Services, DSS, in Abuja.

Nigerian Prison Service officials confirmed the re-arrest of the inmates but refused to state where or how they were caught.
