PRISON BREAK: No DSS Personnel Escaped From Kuje – Dr. Afunanya

The Department of State Services (DSS) has been made aware of an online article from the Vanguard newspaper titled Kuje Prison Attack: One Suspect Reportedly Caught After Hot Chase by Gallant Officers from July 6, 2022.

“The said report alleged that one of the escaping inmates who “claimed to be a DSS personnel was apprehended by NCS operatives near Kwali after a chase.”

The report further stated that the so called DSS operative also claimed to be “carrying out a special mission in the forest”.

The Service wishes to state that none of its personnel was involved in the escape episode.

In fact, at the point of the attack on the prison, no DSS personnel was an inmate at the holding facility just as the claim of carrying out a special assignment was non-existent.

The Vanguard report is not factual and therefore misleading. The public is advised to disregard it.
