A Senegalese boy, Modou Faal, is famous for his repetitive jailbreaks from maximum prison facilities in the capital city, Dakar. According to Senegalese media, Modou Faal escaped prison many times, and this recent one made it number 10.
In the early morning of Sunday, Faal broke out of a penitentiary. The Senegalese authorities are actively searching for him. The Prison official, stated that the police had opened an investigation on him.
In a recorded statement broadcast on private television, Mr. Faal stated that he was still in Senegal waiting for his court date.
