The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Edo Command, says it thwarted the plans of some inmates who attempted a jailbreak at the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) facility, Ubiaja, Esan South East Local Government Area.

This information was disclosed by Richard Ogbebor, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the command while making a statement in Benin. He revealed that the attempted jailbreak occurred from 15:00 hours to 17:00 hours on Wednesday.

Mr Ogbebor explained that the corps had received a distress call on the attempted jailbreak and subsequently mobilized its personnel led by Samuel Ogbeide, an Assistant Superintendent of Corps 1, to the facility.

He said that on getting to the facility, it was discovered that the inmates had broken out from their cells and were already engaging the correctional officers in a fight.

He disclosed that in a bid to bring peace and put the development under control, some of the officers sustained different degrees of injury.

He further said that, however, with assistance from the personnel from the Nigerian Army, 4th Brigade, and the Edo Command, Nigerian Police Force, the inmates were eventually overpowered and taken back to their cells.

He added that security had been extra tight at the correctional facility by all security agencies giving the recentg attack by gunmen who stormed a correctional facility in Owerri, Imo State, freeing over 1,800 inmates.
