Jailbreak in Owerri

Two inmates who are still serving jail terms in Federal Prison, Owerri, Imo State have reportedly escaped.

Punch quoted a staff of the prison as saying that the inmates escaped from
the prison by scaling the fence.

The latest incident is coming few weeks after a major jail break was averted in ‎Federal Prison Bauchi.

He said, “The escapees took the advantage of the ongoing building construction in the male section of the facility to abscond.

“I believe that the plan was hatched by the male inmates who were working at the construction site.

“Their escape has caused serious panic in the prison. There are fears that heads will roll if the convicts are not found. They scaled the fence, while work was going on in the male section of the prison. We believe that most of the male prisoners planned and facilitated the escape.”

It was gathered that the prison authorities had launched an investigation into the cause of the escape.

At the moment, the command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP James Madugba is yet to respond to the development.
