BREAKING: Jailbreak in Benin, Prisoners Invade Streets (Video)
There has been a jailbreak at the correctional centre in Benin, Edo state, with a number of prisoners escaping from the facility.
In videos of the incident seen, inmates, who suddenly found themselves on the streets, were seen running in different directions – some without shirts and footwear.
One of them, who stopped to speak with residents of the area where the video was shot, said that he had been on trial for over two years without his case ever coming up for hearing.
The entire vicinity of the prison is currently in chaos as the mob is wreaking more havoc around the place.
There has been an outbreak of violence in the state following the #EndSARS protests.
