A large number of prisoners have reportedly escaped from the Federal Medium Correctional Centre in the Kabba/Bunu Local Government Area of Kogi State.

This is as gunmen trooped out in their tens to attack the prison centre on the Kabba-Lokoja Highway. The havoc was wreaked on Monday morning and it led to the death of military men watching over the road. This was before they attacked the prison centre.

They thereafter launched a calculated attack on the prison officers before proceeding to get the imprisoned prisonersoff the hook.

An early morning downpour was reported to have aided the escape. The building housing them was allegedly submerged by the sweeping flood.

Not fewer than a hundred of the prisoners have according to reports been rearrested while an unspecified number voluntarily returned.
