The Internet is buzzing with reports that Jamaican dance hall artist Vybz Kartel has escaped from prison. Vybz Kartel who was in prison on suspicion of Murder has allegedly escaped but is this true? more after the jump!
It is alleged according to TheHypeLife
that Vybz Kartel escaped from prison last night with 7 others which caused 1 officer to lose his life. The website reports;
“One prison officer died of a heart attack as a result of the escape and twelve others were injured, including two who were shot with guns that had been smuggled into the prison.
Shortly after 1:00 am, Vybz Kartel, whose given name is Adidja Palmer, took control of the jail holding the prison guards hostage at gunpoint. Some of the prisoners took the guards clothing and car keys in order to help with their escape.
The group of prisoners also impersonated prison officers on the phone and created false stories to ward off suspicion from authorities
The Police gave chase resulting in the capture of one of the prisoners.
At about 1:45 am, they eventually made their way to the prison maintenance pickup-truck which they used to escape from the prison ground.
The escape occurred during the slowest period of the night when there would be less surveillance of certain locations like the maintenance area.“
This sounds like the shawshank Redemption
Say Somethin’ will keep you updated as the story develops!
According to MTV the story is bogus as I thought!
“On Wednesday morning (November 30) it was rumored that dancehall star Vybz Kartel escaped from a holding facility in Jamaica, but new reports from the Jamaica Observer confirm that the entertainer actually appeared in court today, and will have two follow up court dates on December 21 and February 3.
According to the Observer, the 35-year-old performer made an appearance in the Gun Court Division of the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court this morning and he will return again later in the month when the defense will present documents pertaining to the murder of Barrington ‘Bossie’ Burton. On February 3, Kartel will face a preliminary inquiry on the murder case.”
And there you have it *Sigh*
