Jail break foiled in Sapele (Video)

Inmates at the Nigerian Correctional Service, Sapele, Delta State, on Monday attempted a jailbreak, but the attempt foiled by operatives of the service, Nigeria Police and the Department of State Services (DSS).

The jailbreak attempt, it was gathered, bordered on alleged poor treatment of inmates including lack of food and water by the officials of the Sapele Correctional centre.

To pave way for their escape, it was gathered that the inmates ignited a fire on the facility and made attempts to flee the cells.

Meanwhile, one of the indigenes of the community housing the centre who spoke to a reporter stated that the uproar in the facility was because the authorities in the correctional centre released 3 inmates instead of 25 inmates the state government approved to be freed. The decision triggered a protest from the inmates.
