Gunmen kill soldiers on duty, set prisoners free in Kogi

Hundreds of inmates have escaped from a medium federal correctional institution in Kabba, Kogi State’s Kabba/Bunu Local Government Area, after unknown gunmen stormed the facility on the Kabba-Lokoja highway on Sunday night and Monday morning, September 13.

The gunmen assassinated the facility’s military guards before attacking the prison guards and releasing the inmates.

Over 100 inmates have apparently been re-arrested, with an indeterminate number of others returning voluntarily.

Confirming the incident, the Assistant Inspector-General of Police Zone 8, Ayuba Edeh, said the State Commissioner of Police and other heads of security agencies have swung into action.
