THE Controller-General of Corrections, Haliru Nababa, has given fleeing Kabba prison inmates 24 hours to turn themselves in or risk prosecution if arrested.

The CG said this on Tuesday in a statement titled, ‘Attack on medium security custodial centre, Kabba: An update,’ by the spokesman for the Nigerian Correctional Service, Francis Enobore.

The statement explained that security at the custodial facility had been tightened, adding that 114 inmates were back in prison after they escaped from the correctional facility when it was attackedon Sunday.

Enobore, said the security agencies would use the photographs and biometric data of the escapees to track them down.

The statement reads partly, “Following the attack on the Medium Security Custodial Centre, Kabba in Kogi State on September 12, 2021, and the swift intervention of the Controller General of Corrections, Haliru Nababa, a total of 114 escapees have been recaptured.

“The CG, who personally led a team to the Custodial Centre for an on-the-spot assessment, directed immediate Search Party Response Team to go after the escapees even as security has been beefed up through the deployment of additional armed squad personnel to fortify the facility.

“He advised the escapees to turn in themselves within the next 24 hours or risk prosecution if arrested.

“He noted that it will be of no use for them to keep hiding since their photographs and biometrics have been captured and are intact.”

Earlier, Public Relation Officer for the Kogi Correctional Service, Mr Niyi Sesan, said, “While some of the inmates were rearrested, majority of them came back voluntarily.”
