One of the three terror convicts who escaped Kamiti Maximum Prison a few weeks ago but were rearrested, now says that he can escape the prison's walls if he gets another opportunity.

Speaking to civilians, on Monday, at the Kahawa Law Courts, Musharaf Abdallah said that he would rather attempt to make another escape than spend another term in jail, as reported by Citizen Digital.

"I escaped from prison because I was looking for my freedom after staying here for ten years," Abdallah said.

Asked if he would escape the prison once more, the convict replied: "Absolutely!" adding that it is difficult to serve all his first terms plus the new ones that will be added unto him for trying to escape.

"I have to escape... You see I am going back to prison to serve a new term added to those that I was given before," he said.

Abdalla escaped prison alongside two other terror convicts; Mohammed Ali Abikar and Josep Juma Odhiambo.

The three are said to have escaped from prison with the help of a prison officer.

Investigating officers have established that the said prison warden was the link between the prisoners and the financiers of the escape who hail from Somalia.

The trio is said to have drilled a hole in the cell wall before scaling high walls using ropes to climb the walls.

After escaping the prison's walls, they are said to have used a private car from Kamiti to Machakos where they used a public service vehicle to move from Machakos to Kitui Town and later to Endau.

Detectives are now looking for two vehicles, the one that ferried them to Machakos and the other one believed to have been put on standby to sneak them into Somalia.
