NCS To Publish Names Of Prison Escapees (Updated: Sunday, 25th October 2020, 03:39 PM)


The Nigerian Correctional Service revealed  plans to publish names and photographs of prison escapees in the late one week.

It said over 1,500 inmates who escaped from the prison at Benin and Oko, Edo State, and in Okitipupa, Ondo State, on Monday Octoober 26, and Thursday October 29, respectively.

A few weeks ago, while the #EndSARS protests was on going,some thugs hijacked the protest and allegedly attacked several prisons, setting the prisoners free.

While giving an update on efforts to recapture the prisoners, the spokesperson of the Nigeria Correctional  Service, Austin Njoku, said the service was equally mobilising various security and intelligence resources to recapture the fleeing inmates.

He noted that  1,993 inmates broke out of the two custodial centres in Edo State, while 58 reportedly escaped from the Ondo correctional facility.

Speaking to newsmen, Njoku said

“We are mobilising the people and the press for information because to inject the number of such people into society is a problem. Imagine over 1,000 criminals injected into society? We are mobilising the intelligence agencies, the police and the DSS (Department of State Services). We are publishing their names and pictures very soon.”

Meanwhile, 25 inmates who escaped from Oko and Sapele Road Correctional Centre when hoodlums broke into the facilities have voluntarily returned to the centres and surrendered themselves to the authorities.
