According to Gistreel.com, the suspects identified as SM Ahmadu was brought in on May 1, 2020, and was at the Isolation center till Saturday, May 10, when he escaped.
It is further reported that the navy officer had requested to smoke marijuana when he was brought to the center last week but he was denied permission to satisfy his urge.
