One Dies, 12 Injured In Failed Rivers Jailbreak

At least one inmate died while 12 others were injured during a fight that snowballed into an attempted jailbreak at the Port Harcourt correctional centre on Monday afternoon

Punch reports that two inmates were engaged in a fight leading to the death of one of them, even as a protest ensued amongst other inmates.

The situation spiraled as many inmates tried to scale the facility’s high walls, but were repelled by a combined team of security operatives who shot outside the fence, with 12 of them sustaining bullet wounds.

Spokesperson of the Port Harcourt correctional facility, Juliet Ofoni, confirmed the incident
