Dismissed Teacher Charged With S3xual Molestation Flees During Kuje Prison Jailbreak

A dismissed teacher in Abuja, Igoche Daniel Adah charged with alleged s3xual molestation before an Abuja High Court is suspected to be among inmates who escaped from prison custody when some gunmen attacked the Kuje Correctional Centre last week.

Adah was ordered to be remanded in prison custody on June 23, when he was arraigned before Justice Akeem Fashola of the Federal Territory High Court sitting in Jabi.

The Commissioner of Police in the FCT had put the dismissed teacher on trial on charges of s3xual abuse-related offences.

Adah was slammed with one count charge to the effect that on April 15, 2021, he repeatedly touched the breast and other sensitive parts of a 14-year-old student of Destiny Academy, Lugbe in Abuja where he was teaching.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge punishable under section 32 of the Child Rights Act.

At Thursday’s proceedings, the accused person was not present in court, fuelling speculation that he might have escaped from Kuje prison where he has been on remand since June 23.

His defence counsel, led by Terka Aondo confirmed that Adah escaped from custody during the attack.

He, however, claimed that the accused had returned to custody, but failed to produce him in court due to logistics hiccups.
