Ghanaian protection forces have increased security along its borders following the jailbreak of around 443 convicts from the Kuje Maximum Security Prison in Abuja, Nigeria.

The 879 prisoners rescued by the extremist organization Boko Haram included the fugitives.

The terrorist organization is connected to 64 of the wanted individuals.

The Ghana Immigration Service stated in a memo to all of its commands, “Official reports indicate that at least 443 out of 879 inmates who escaped as a result of the break are still on the run.” The Jihadist group Boko Haram is believed to be behind the attack, which used high-end explosives and guns to free all 64 Boko Haram-linked inmates at the prison and are among the escapees who are still on the run. “

“In light of the foregoing, I am directed to inform you that stringent measures should be implemented at all points of entry and patrols should be increased to deter and intercept all escapees who will attempt to infiltrate the country,” the memo said.
