Prison inmate at the Ikoyi correctional center must have obtained an escape blueprint from their now-free counterparts in Benin. The prisoner’s turned violent, setting parts of the facility on fire, in a bid to escape.
However, the swift intervention of the army and the doggedness of the correctional officers saved the day. An unconfirmed number of inmates paid with their lives while others were subdued and made to lie flat on the ground.
The attempted prison break in Ikoyi came barely 72 hours after a massive prison break occurred in Benin.
