There was an apparent plot to kill Vybz Kartel AKA “The World Boss” in prison. Jamaican prison officials uncovered the plot before it could be carried out.
Apparently the plot was to be carried out by an employee at the prison and an inmate at the Horizon Remand Center. The prison employee admitted she was instructed by the inmate to pick up two bottles of lotion and three knives which would be used in carrying out the killing.
She was successful in smuggling the items into the prison but not successful in hiding them. The items were found by correctional officers in the prison. The plan was for the inmate to use the items to attack Vybz Kartel when both prisoners were out of their cell.
The prison employee is now in police custody and is expected to face further interrogation.
