It has been reported that some thugs have broken into one of the prisons in Edo state popularly known as ‘White House’ and freed several prisoners in one of the cells.
The thugs hijacked the #EndSARS protests, freeing prisoners to join the protesters in the state.
According to an eye witness, the thugs were gathered along Sapele Road just beside the prison as at 7am while setting bonfires and preventing road users from using that route as they were sent back.
The prison break began when the thugs broke a part of the wall, others climbed the fence into the prison yard, breaking the gates of one of the cells, rescuing all the inmates.
The High Court 4 which is beside the prison was also destroyed.
