Senegalese serial jailbreaker Baye Modou Fall who escaped on Saturday from a prison in the capital Dakar has been rearrested.
It was his 12th jailbreak from Senegalese prisons, local media report.
He was captured in Moussala in the east of the country near the Malian border, a spokesman for Senegal’s gendamerie told the AFP news agency.
The 32-year-old who is known as the “Escape Ace” on Monday told local TV that he had escaped because the legal process was taking too long and he had been denied bail.
He also described how he had escaped from the prison by breaking a ventilation grill in the cell and escaping over a wall in the prison using a rope.
The authorities are investigating whether there was complicity in the jailbreak.
