Six of the 15 inmates that escaped from Nsukka prison have been re-arrested

Six out of the fifteen inmates that escaped during a jailbreak at the Nsukka Prison in Enugu state on Tuesday August 9th have been re-arrested. This was disclosed by the Enugu state comptroller of Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS), Isaiah Amariri who spoke with newsmen in the state today August 11th.
“There was a jail break in Nsukka prisons on Tuesday night between 12pm and 3am, in which many inmates escaped, though six of them have been re-arrested. I cannot give the exact figure for now as investigations are still on. We will send our findings to the comptroller-general of prisons who will make public the exact number and cause of Nsukka prisons jail break. The service is liaising with security agents and community vigilante groups to know the hideout of those still on the run in order to re-arrest them. After investigations on the jail break, any person in the service found to have been involved or aided the Tuesday jail break will be arrested and prosecuted no matter his or her position” he said
