Osun Jailbreak: Four inmates, Prison official killed


Four inmates have died at the Nigerian Correctional Centre, Ile-Ife, Osun, during an attempted jailbreak, according to a top security officer who spoke on anonymity in Ile-Ife on Tuesday.

The official said that some inmates had planned to escape during the morning sanitation and while attempting to flee the centre, injured a warder.

He explained that the inmates attempted to force their way out but were repelled by security men who killed four of them, before others retreated.

Sola Adeotan, spokesperson for the Osun command of the correctional service, said it was a rumour as there was no information on the incident.

However, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Yemisi Opalola, confirmed the incident but pleaded for more time to get the details.
