The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has reacted to the attack on Kuje Medium Correctional Center in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

In a statement released via his social media platforms on Wednesday, Atiku expressed worry and sadness over the escape of over 600 criminals from the prison facility on Tuesday evening.

The former Vice President said his concern is also about the security implications for the security of lives and property of residents of Abuja and its environs.

Atiku also urged the Muhammadu Buhari government to prioritise the arrest and prosecution of criminals which will serve as a deterrent to other intending criminals.

He said: “I am concerned and saddened by reports of the attack on Kuje Prison by suspected terrorists.

“My concern arises not only from the prospects of the escape of detained terrorists and hardened criminals but of its implications for the security of lives and property to residents of Abuja and its environs.

“I wish to restate what I said to the press on Monday that our inability to enthrone a regime of law and order in which the arrest and prosecution of criminals will be made a priority as a deterrent to copycats is the reason why insecurity continues to fester in our country.

Atiku’s submission comes as several reactions continue to trail Tuesday night’s attack on the Kuje Medium Correctional Center.
