By Collins Mbakwe
Kuje Medium Prisons on Tuesday night came under heavy attack by suspected terrorists, throwing the entire area Council into confusion.
The first explosion, a high capacity bomb, went off around 10.25pm. It was followed by second and third blast and sporadic gunshots that left the residents scampering into safety.
Few hours earlier, security report had alerted the prison officials of possible attacks of the medium prison.
A prison staff, who confirmed the attack, explained that the attackers had come from the back of the prison yard.
