Jailbreak: Interior Minister visits Minna prison


The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Danbazau, has visited the Medium Security Prisons in Minna, the Niger State capital, where there was a jailbreak.

The visit of the Minister follows after gunmen attacked the prison on Sunday night in the Tunga area of Minna Metropolis.

Two persons, a prison warder and a commercial motorcyclist, were killed in the process of the jailbreak.

Police and other security Agencies are on the trail of the inmate that escaped.

The prison service has since called on residents of the area to go about their normal activities noting that normalcy has returned and security agencies are working to ensure that fleeing inmates are recaptured.
