Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has confirmed the capture and arrest of Sinoa Drug Cartel boss, Joaquín Guzmán, famously known as El Chapo.
The President confirmed the news via Twitter.
He tweeted, “Mission accomplished: We have him. I want to inform the Mexicans that Joaquin Guzman Loera has been detained,” the tweet states, written in Spanish.
Five people were killed and one Mexican marine wounded in the clash that captured “El Chapo”, according to The Associated Press.
Guzman, 57, escaped from the Altiplano prison near Mexico City July 11 and there has been an active manhunt for him ever since.
