Kogi prison had again experienced another jail
break involving thirteen inmates who eventually made their way out from Medium
Prison along Opareke in Kogi State.
They were said to have escaped on
Saturday morning after the prison wall collapsed.
Checks reveals also, that the prison
officials on duty opened some of the cells for the inmates to come out for
their normal morning activities, only for the inmates to pull a section of the
prison’s wall down and escape into a nearby bush.
One of the prison officials, who
pleaded on condition of anonymity, said four kidnappers were brought to the
Koton-Karfi Prison on Friday afternoon. He added that the new inmates might
have been responsible for the escape.
Saturday’s incident is the third
jailbreak in the last three weeks in the prison.
Efforts to speak with the
Comptroller of Prison, Kogi State Command, Mr. Musa Maza, proved abortive.
