An inmate serving a 23-year sentence for kidnap, rape, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm and a stabbing, has been moved from Whitemoor Prison at March, Cambridgeshire, after he broke a prison officer’s jaw. Abdirahman Abukar, 25, Abukar, who is now at HMP Frankland, Brasside, Durham, pleaded guilty to grievous bodily harm and actual bodily harm and was sentenced to a further year in prison at Huntingdon Law Courts on Monday on top of the sentence he is already serving.

The court heard that he punched the prison officer and broke his jaw after he was asked to end his phone call.

Abukar was using the phone at HMP Whitemoor in November 2021 when a guard asked him to end his call as it was time to go back to his cell.

He ignored the guard and carried on with his call. The guard approached and again asked him to end the call, but this time Abukar launched himself at the guard, punching him in the face and breaking his jaw.

Abukar was wrestled to the ground by other guards and quickly restrained. During the scuffle, another prison guard suffered a shoulder injury.

Detective Constable Emma Purser, who investigated, said: “This was a violent and unprovoked attack that nobody should have to endure, and it left the victims with serious injuries.

“Prison staff work hard to ensure the safety of inmates and should be able to do so without fear of being attacked.”

Abukar – and two others – were jailed at Exeter Crown Court in August 2017. The men were part of an organised crime group who called themselves ‘Chyna Crew’.
