From the break of dawn this morning a frenzy broke throughout the internet world that the infamous Vybz Kartel (real name Adidja Palmer) had managed to smuggle guns into Horizon Adult Remand Centre in Spanish Town Road, Jamaica and escaped with seven other prisoners causing injuries to others including a prison guard to die from a heart attack in the process.
While blogs and online blogs jumped on the hype, (no pun to Hypelife), others waited until it was confirmed from a reputable source. Even The Metro joined in ready to state that the dancehall star who has been charged for two murders and has been denied bail is now on the list for Jamaica’s Most Wanted.
Jamaican press has finally spoken out and guess what….. They say it isn’t true!
Assistant Commissioner of Police Les Green told the Jamaican Observer early this morning that he had no knowledge of the reported jail break.
"I know nothing about that. If that had taken place I would certainly have known," Green said.
Police at Denham Town Police station, the closest police station to the remand centre were also unaware of the reports as was the Constabulary Communication Network who also claimed ignorance of any jail break.
"It may be an attempt by his cronies to keep him in the news but they don't need to spread rumours to do that because he will be in the news for quite some time," one cop told the Observer.
Guess he’s not the World Boss after all!!! *sigh* From the mouth of the great Gregory Isaacs.... Rumours are spreading....
