The gang leader's plan was apparently to leave his teen daughter inside the prison and now the police are looking into her possible role as an accomplice in the accused's failed escape attempt from Gericinó prison. Rio’s State Secretary of Prison Administration released photos showing Clauvino da Silva in a silicon girl’s mask and long dark-haired wig, wearing a pink shirt with a cartoon image of donuts and tight jeans. They also released a video in which the accused can be seen removing the mask and some of the clothes and stating his full name.
Netizens on the social media platform, Twitter couldn't keep calm and started reacting to the video in numbers. Here's how the internet reacted to this innovative jailbreak:

According to the authorities, the accused was part of the leadership of one of the most powerful criminal groups in Brazil, the Red Command, that controlled drug trafficking in a large part of Rio. After his failed escape bid was busted, Clauvino da Silva was transferred to a unit of a maximum-security prison and will face disciplinary sanctions, officials said.
