Nigeria correctional service (NCS) on Tuesday said at least 108 out of 240 inmates who escaped in the early hours of Monday from medium federal correctional centre in Kabba, Kabba/Bunu Local Government Area of Kogi State have been recaptured.
It was reported earlier that heavily armed gunmen stormed the Correctional Centre in Kabba, in Kogi State, late on Sunday, freeing scores of inmates.
“We have a total of 108 inmates rearrested,” Nigeria’s correctional service spokesman Francis Enobore told AFP by phone.
“But as the day progresses, the figure will definitely increase,” he added, saying “several processes have been activated to ensure all inmates are rearrested.”
