When we think of inmates breaking out of prison, we tend to believe that all the tricks have been exhausted.
From starting prison riots to working for months digging tunnels El-Chapo style; nothing can surprise us anymore, or so we thought.
One Brazilian drug lord decided to shoot his shot in breaking out of prison in the most low-budget way possible – by disguising himself as his own daughter.
The inmate, identified as Clauvino Da Silva boldly attempted to sneak out of the most notorious prisons in Rio De Janeiro by wearing a smart disguise.
Da Silva’s plan was simple; all he had to do was stroll out of the prison in his disguise and convince the guards that he was his 19-year-old daughter.
And his plan nearly worked as well as his disguise was no ordinary one.
Photos accessed by YEN.com.gh show Da Silva in his cheeky disguise which would have easily passed as an actual female figure.
This isn’t the first time Da Silva has tried to escape either.
The Guardian reports that in January 2013, he was among 31 inmates who made a prison break attempt by trying to tunnel out of the prison complex through the sewers.
Prior to his attempted break out of prison, Da Silva was facing 73 years in prison for his involvement in the infamous Brazilian Red Command drug faction.
In other news, YEN.com.gh reported that Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, shared the email she received from an alleged assassin sent to kill her.
In reaction to the email, Tonto explained that the supposed assassin talks too much and she is assured that this would be the last time he would send her a mail because she would make sure he gets apprehended.
