Breaking: Mob Breaks Into Edo State Prison, Set Many Inmates Free (Video)


A mob on Monday attacked the Benin Prison along Sapele Road, Edo State, freeing many inmates in the process

In videos of the incident seen, inmates, who suddenly found themselves on the streets, were seen running in different directions – some without shirts and footwear.

One of them, who stopped to speak with residents of the area where the video was shot, said that he had been on trial for over two years without his case ever coming up for hearing.

According to him, the Investigating Police Officer of his case collected money from him but never investigated the matter, leaving the authorities to throw him in jail.

While walking away from the scene, he rained curses at the policeman, he claimed was behind his ordeal.

The entire vicinity of the prison is currently in chaos as the mob is wreaking more havoc around the place.

A 24 hour curfew has been declared in the state starting from 4pm today 19th October, 2020. Parents are advised to rein in their children, youths and wards, to forestall further breakdown of law and order.
