The Owerri Correctional Center has confirmed the Monday attack on its facility.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, James Madugba, who confirmed the attack on the facility, said he could not confirm the number of inmates who were freed by the attackers.

Apart from inmates, Madugba disclosed that vehicles and the administrative block of the command were burnt.

He stated this in a telephone interview on Monday afternoon.

Madugba said, “I can’t confirm the number of inmates who were freed but I all I could tell that there was attack and inmates fled. Vehicles at the center were burnt. The administrative block of Center was also attacked.”

He, however, said that the command was going to come up an official statement on the number of inmates who were freed by the gunmen.
