The armed squad of prison officials engaged the suspected hoodlums in a gunfight which resulted in some persons sustaining injuries.

Also destroyed was the High Court 4 which is beside the prison.

The hoodlums started gathering along Sapele Road beside the prison as early as 7:00 a.m. setting bonfires and turning back road users.

They attacked the prison when more people joined the gathering. They broke a part of the wall while some climbed the fence into the prison yard.
