As Nigerians are still battling to come to terms over the terrorist attack on Kuje prison, security sources, on Wednesday, disclosed that soldiers deployed to vicinity who were familiar with the terrain, were moved out and redeployed 24 hours before terrorists launched attack on Kuje Prison.

Though, the source according to Vanguard Newspaper wondered why it was 24 hours after troops, who had come to understand the vicinity, were withdrawn and new ones yet to settle in, arrived that the terrorists launched the deadly attack.

Meanwhile, security sources also told Vanguard that the terrorists were able to beat checkpoints mounted by security agencies through the use of motorcycles.

One source said that when the terrorists wanted to commence the operation, they opened volleys of bullets sporadically, which made many residents take to their heels thus clearing the way for their operation.
