– There was a jail break at Nsukka prisons on Tuesday, August 9 

– The Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS) has said that 6 of the escapees have been captured 

– Authorities say the search is still on for the remaining escapees The Enugu state controller of Nigeria prisons service (NPS), Mr Isaiah Amariri has announced the re-arrest of 6 inmates who escaped from Nsukka prisons on the night of Tuesday, August 9.




Amariri denied telling newsmen on Thursday, August 11 the exact number of inmates who escaped. He said the prison service was liaising with security agents and community groups to apprehend the remaining escaped prisoners. He said: “There was a jail break in Nsukka prisons on Tuesday night between 12pm and 3am, in which many inmates escaped, though six of them have been re-arrested. “I cannot give the exact figure for now as investigations are still on.

“We will send our findings to the Controller General of Prisons who will make public the exact number and cause of Nsukka prisons jail break. “The service is liaising with security agents and community vigilante groups to know the hideout of those still on the run in order to re-arrest them.” He assured that any official indicted the course of the investigation would be punished. “After investigations on the jail break, any person in the service found to have been involved or aided the Tuesday jail break will be arrested and prosecuted no matter his or her position,” he said. 
Adding that “Security has been beefed up in and around Nsukka prisons with serious surveillance on the prisons facilities, inmates and staff. “The prisons authorities are on top of the situation and will put measures in place to avoid a repeat of what happened on Tuesday night in Nsukka.” The controller solicited the help of the general public who might have information on the whereabouts of the fleeing inmates, to report to relevant security agencies.

“We solicit for help from the general public who may have information about the fleeing inmates to feel free and call prisons authorities or security agents to enable them re-arrest the escapees. “We promise that such information will be given the confidentiality it deserves and source identity will be fully protected.” 

According to Amariri, the Nsukka Prisons was established a hundred years ago with the original capacity of 168 inmates, but currently harbours 264 prisoners.
NAN reported that at least 15 inmates escaped in the prison break that happened at Nsukka Prison in Enugu state. A source at the jail said that the prisoners broke their cells and scaled over the perimeter fence late Tuesday, August 9. He said: 

“The inmates carefully opened their cells and scaled the perimeter fence of the prisons. “Before prison officials on night duty knew what was happening, about 15 inmates had escaped.” 

Controller of prison Lawrence Okonkwo confirmed the accident but denied to give the number of inmates who fled. 
“Yes there was a jailbreak last night in Nsukka prison but I am not in a position to say how many prisoners escaped,” he stated. In a similar development, about 13 inmates ran from the Koton Karfe prison in Kogi after a fresh jailbreak reported on Saturday, July 30. NAN reports that the incident occurred at about 7am when the inmates forcefully brought down the wall of the jail. 

The all male prison facility which was commissioned in 2014 has the capacity to suit 180 prisoners. Meanwhile, it was accommodating about 263 inmates as at the time of the jailbreak. Sources reveal that one of the escapees was re-arrested almost instantly by security agents. It was the third jailbreak reported in Koton Karfe as the old prison facility witnessed similar jailbreaks in 2010 and 2013.
