Inmate escapes in Benin

Inmate escapes in Benin

By NAN
An inmate of the Benin Prisons was said to
have escaped from the custody of a warder
of the Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS) on
Monday in Benin City.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) learnt
that officials of the NPS are now in search
of the prisoner, who escaped while carrying
out some menial work.
It was said that the inmate, along with his
colleagues, were cutting grass at the Moat,
behind the State Headquarters of the
Nigeria Prisons Service, when he escaped.
He was said to have pulled off his prison
wear and ran into a nearby bush.
When NAN contacted the Spokesman of the
NPS in Benin, Mr Aminu Suleiman, he could
neither confirm nor deny the information.
He said, “I am not in the office and as such,
I cannot tell you if it is true or not.
“I will speak with you on this after getting
information on it, upon my return to the
office.”
