Suspected terrorist Charles Okah has been caught with a mobile phone SIM Card hidden inside his pant during checks by warders at Kuje Prisons in the Nigerian capital, Abuja.
This was announced today by the Nigeria Prison Service (NPS) via a statement signed by its spokesman, Ope Fatinikun.
Charles Okah is one of the suspects facing trial for alleged involvement in the October 1, 2010 bombing in Abuja. He smuggled a GSM phone into his prison cell and was caught with a SIM card in his pant, according to the NPS statement, which said:
“During the search, Charles Okah, as usual refused to be searched. But when he eventually submitted himself to the search,an MTN SIM Card was found on him(under his pants),A Nokia C2 phone and a memory card were also discovered in an electric bulb fitting located on top of the concrete ceiling of his cell.”
The statement dismissed as unfounded the recent allegation by Okah’s lawyer, Barrister Festus Keyamo, that some prison officials were trying to sodomise his client.
