Kogi Jailbreak: Security Operatives Recapture 114 Inmates

Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS) said agencies have recaptured 114 inmates that escaped from the Medium Security Custodial Centre, Kabba in Kogi State following an attack on the facility by unidentified gunmen yesterday.

A statement by the public relations officer of the service, Francis Enobore, said the escapees were recaptured following the swift intervention by the controller general of the service, Haliru Nababa, who personally led a team to the custodial centre for on-the-spot assessment.

Enobore said Nababa had also directed immediate search party response team to go after the escapees, even as security has been beefed up through the deployment of additional armed squad personnel to fortify the facility.


The CG, according to the statement, also commended the collaboration and support extended to the service by sister security agencies including the vigilante groups which assisted in recapturing the fleeing inmates.

He advised other fleeing inmates to turn themselves in within the next 24 hours or risk prosecution if arrested.

The statement noted that it would be of no use for the escapees to keep hiding since their photographs and biometrics have been captured and are intact.
While assuring the general public of their safety, the CG stated that no effort would be spared in smoking out fugitives from hiding.
