Security Operatives Have Recaptured Over 300 Inmates That Escaped From Oyo Prison

The issue of attack on correctional centers in Nigeria calls for concern as it has become a norm for gunmen to attack and free inmates.

On Friday, it was reported that gunmen attacked the Abolongo correctional facility in Oyo State, freeing all the inmates therein.

But according to the Controller of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Oyo State Command, Mr. Noel Ailewon, more than 300 inmates who escaped during Friday’s attacks have been recaptured.

For me, I think this is a good move by the security operatives. It was also gathered that one of the inmate who attempted to escape died.

If more of the escaped inmates are not recaptured, there might be serious menace in the society as the rate of crime in Oyo state may inflate.

I think, more measures should be put in place to get hints on where they escaped to and how they can be recaptured.
