Profile Of 'VIP' Inmates In Kuje Prison Before Attack

(1) Hamisu Bala (Wadume)

Popularly known as Wadume, Hamisu Bala was a Taraba-based kidnap kingpin who was notorious in the North-east and North-central parts of Nigeria.

He is believed to be among the over 400 inmates who are still at large.

(2) Abba Kyari

A decorated police officer, Mr Kyari slipped into infamy in early 2022 when he was arrested for aiding and abetting drug pushing. His celebrity status was first brought under public scrutiny in July 2021 when the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation linked him to $1.1 million internet fraud perpetrated by a popular Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas, also known as Hushpuppi.

(3) Kabiru Dikko (Kabiru Sokoto)

Notorious for the 2011 Christmas Day bombing in Madalla, Niger State, many were relieved when police announced the eventual arrest of Kabiru Dikko, largely known as Kabiru Sokoto.

He masterminded the attack on the St Theresa Roman Catholic Church, which killed at least 37 persons and injured many others.

(4) Peter Nwachukwu

Peter Nwachukwu was given a criminal status following the death of a popular gospel artiste, Osinachi Nwachukwu.

(5) Farouk Lawan

Once a vocal voice on the floor of Nigeria House of Representatives, Farouk Lawan ended up committing a crime in a matter he was appointed to investigate.

(5) Abdulrasheed Maina

Rather than cleaning the rot in the country’s pension system, Abdulrasheed Maina did more damage to the same system.

Mr Maina was sentenced to eight years’ imprisonment for money laundering offences involving N2 billion of pension funds.

Former federal lawmaker, Farouk Lawan

As the chairman of the ad-hoc committee investigating the fraud around the fuel subsidy regime, Mr Lawan was caught on camera collecting a $500,000 bribe from Femi Otedola, a Nigerian billionaire and oil mogul in 2012.
