Capital Offenders, Convicts Among Those Who Escaped From Kogi Jail Break


Two armed robbery convicts and 11 awaiting trial suspects were among the 13 inmates who escaped from Koton Karfe prison in Kogi in the early hours of Saturday.

The inmates in one of the cells in the prison dug a big hole in the wall of their cell to aid their escape.

An authoritative source at the prison told NAN on Sunday that armed and conventional squads of the Nigeria Prison Service had launched manhunt to re-arrest the fleeing inmates.

The source added that the prison authority also contacted the police to assist it in tracking down the inmates some of who are facing trial for capital offences.
