Jailbreak: How Operatives Immobilised Prison Inmates in Osun State
Following the successful containment of an attempted jailbreak at Ile-Ife Custodial Centre, Osun State on 4th January 2022, I wish to state that normalcy has been restored in the facility.
Recall that at about 1148 hours, during a routine open-out of inmates for daily exercises, the inmates in a particular cell attacked the officers on duty and succeeded in breaking out more inmates from other cells.
Having overpowered the officers due to their large number, surged to the main gate in a bid to break out from jail.
While the officers trapped within the yard where being manhandled, the ensuing confrontation between the escaping inmates and the armed personnel on guard duty resulted in four (4) of the inmates being imobilised. They were taken to the hospital for medical attention. Two (2) of the injured inmates later lost their lives while the remaining 2 are still in the hospital responding to treatment.
Controller of Corrections, CC Olanrewaju Amoran was on ground to assess the situation.
He assures members of the public that the inmates are in safe custody and normalcy has returned to the yard while investigation is ongoing
The Controller, on behalf of Controller Genera of Corrections, Haliru Nababa mni, appreciates other sister security agencies, for their swift response to support officers and men of the Service.
