Criminal charges against a former D.C. jail guard caused the Nigerian-born man to skip town, but he’s back in custody now more than three years later. Niki Akinyosoye was charged with smuggling contraband to inmates in the D.C. Correctional Treatment Facility, a branch of the jail run by a private contractor. In 2002, he was released on his own recognizance after his arraignment, but he didn’t surface again until Canadian border agents arrested him last year on immigration charges in Toronto. The case stemmed from an FBI sting in 2002 after an inmate reported that Akinyosoye sold contraband to D.C. inmates. During the sting, Akinyosoye allegedly smuggled $400 to an inmate working with the FBI with Akinyosoye pocketing $600 that was supplied by an undercover FBI agent. He also smuggled the inmate a pager for $200, prosecutors allege. When he appeared in D.C.’s federal court last week, Akinyosoye was ordered held without bond to keep him nearby.
