 Jailbreak Attempt Foiled In Edo State

A prison break attempt was thwarted by inmates at the Nigerian Correctional Service Facility (NCoS), Ubiaja, Southeastern Esan Local Government Area on Wednesday, April 14th by the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), EDO leadership.

In a statement issued in Benin, the leadership spokesperson, Richard Ogbebor, revealed that the attempt to jailbreak took place from 3 PM to 5 PM on Wednesday. Ogbebor explained that the leadership received a distress call and then mobilized its personnel to the facility.

Ogbebor said that upon reaching the facility, it was discovered that the inmates had escaped from their cells and were already engaging the corrections officers in a fight. In an effort to control development, he said, some officers sustained varying degrees of injuries.

He added that with the help of elements of the Nigerian Army, the 4th Brigade, and the Edo Command, the Nigerian Police Force, the prisoners were finally overpowered and returned to their cells.
