Atiku stated this while reacting to Tuesday night terrorist attack by individuals believed to be Boko Haram insurgents on Kuje prison in Abuja, which led to freeing of  over 1,000 dangerous  criminals.

Condemning the attack, Atiku,  feared that the tough criminals who escaped the facility may cause more security issues in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The PDP presidential candidate tweeted, 

“I am concerned and saddened by reports of the attack on Kuje Prison by suspected terrorists. My concern arises not only from the prospects of the escape of detained terrorists and hardened criminals but of its implications for the security of lives and property to residents of Abuja and its environs.

“I wish to restate what I said on Monday that our inability to enthrone a regime of law & order in which the arrest and prosecution of criminals will be made a priority as a deterrent to copycats is the reason why insecurity continues to fester in our country.
