We made an earlier report about inmates of an Imo State prison breaking jail.
A total of 1,884 inmates were involved in the jail break that occurred at the Owerri Custodial Centre, Imo State.
This came after the facility was attacked by gunmen and as we speak, six escaped inmates have returned to the facility.
During the attack, 35 inmates did not escape and the spokesman, NCoS, Francis Enobore, disclosed in a statement that the acting Controller-General of Corrections, John Mrabure, has ordered a comprehensive investigation into the incident.
The statement titled, ‘Owerri custodial centre attacked by unknown gunmen,’ and partly reads;
“While appealing to the good citizens of Imo State and indeed Nigerians to volunteer useful intelligence that will facilitate the recovery effort, the acting Controller-General wishes to assure that the security of custodial centres in the country remains sacrosanct.
He equally directed all officers attached to custodial facilities to remain vigilant at this trying moment in our history.”
