Nigeria: Vice President Osibanjo condemns attacks on prison facility, police HQ

Nigeria’s Vice-President professor Yemi Osinbajo has condemned the attacks on the federal prison and police command headquarters in Owerri, Imo state.
 Some inmates were freed when gunmen attacked the correctional centre on Monday, while buildings and vehicles were razed when the police headquarters was invaded.

The Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS) had said over 1,800 inmates escaped from custody, while the police accused members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra of being behind the attacks.

During his visit to the affected facilities on Tuesday, the vice-president condemned the jailbreak which he said led to the release of dangerous criminals, adding that the search for the escaped inmates “has begun in earnest.
