Thugs Attack Another Prison In Edo, Free Many Inmates

Thugs Attack Another Prison In Edo, Free Many Inmates (Updated: 2 years ago)


Suspected thugs have attacked the Oko Medium Security Centre in Edo State, freeing many inmates in the process.

This is coming some hours after a jailbreak at the correctional centre in Benin City.

There has been an outbreak of violence in Edo State following the #EndSARS protests.

A source told SaharaReporters that the thugs, who were in large numbers, also carted away valuables from offices of prison officials.

 

Meanwhile, the Edo State Government has imposed a 24-hour curfew across the state.

In a statement, Osarodion Ogie, Secretary to the State Government, said the curfew will remain across the state “till further notice”.

Ogie said hoodlums have hijacked the #EndSARS protest and the government would not allow continuous attacks.

“The curfew is to take effect from 4:00pm, October 19, 2020. This decision has become necessary because of the very disturbing incidents of vandalism and attacks on private individuals and institutions by hoodlums in the guise of #ENDSARS protesters,” the statement reads.
