Reports filtering in have it that Charles Okah, who was wrongly alleged to have escaped from the Kuje Prisons during a jail break on Friday, June 24, may be suffering from Lassa Fever.

According to The Cable.ng, the Niger Delta militant who was named as the mastermind of the October 1, 2010 bombing in Nigeria, is being isolated at the Kuje prison over suspicion of the infection.

The militant who spoke through his lawyers at First Law Solicitors, said that he would never have been involved in any prison break because he is confident of “triumphantly walking out of the Kuje Prison gates as a free and vindicated man.

The statement signed by Timipa Jenkins Okponipere, read further: “We are Solicitors to CHARLES TONBRA OKAH (whom we shall hereinafter, refer to as “our client”).

“Our client has instructed us to notify the general public that he was not involved in any manner whatsoever in the prison break, which occurred at about 7.00pm on Friday June 24, 2016 at the Kuje Maximum Security Prison in Abuja.

“It is our client’s brief that he was quarantined in an isolation room within the Kuje Prison Clinic for a suspected Lassa Fever infection when news of the incident broke.

“On account of his popularity amongst the inmates, word quickly spread that our client was among the two inmates who escaped by scaling the 25 feet-high Kuje Prison fence. It took almost 24 hours for the inmates and Prison Authority to realise that our client had not escaped from the Prison.

“Our client has further instructed us to notify all Nigerians and the international community that, God willing, and without prejudice to his ongoing trial, he shall triumphantly walk out of the Kuje Prison gates as a free and vindicated man.

“He has already set his sights, upon his release, on working assiduously with the current administration to bring stability to the Niger Delta region.

“He is however, using this opportunity to appeal to the Judiciary, particularly, Hon. Justice Gabriel Kolawole, to speedily determine his case; which has dragged on for nearly 7 years.

“Our client has further and better instructed us to notify his kith and kin in the Niger Delta region to give maximum support to the AARON TEAM 2; a peace initiative of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) which is aimed at dialogue with the Federal Government on the immediate, medium and long-term future of the region.”

The militant also appealed to the different militant groups in the Niger Delta to: “stop the attacks on oil installations and desist from being used by disgruntled, corrupt and selfish politicians.”

Charles is the younger brother of Henry Okah, the former leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND).
