“We do not know what they want to do with us, some people are on the ground now rolling and crying”
Confusion has broken out at Kuje Maximum Prison, Abuja as officials of the prison are shooting teargas at inmates.
It appears to be a reprisal action embarked upon by the officials, following the last jailbreak in which some prisons officials were reprimanded.
A source told Vanguard: “There is a lock down in the prison, prisons officials are throwing tear-gas at the inmates to cow them because of the last jail break.”
The report quoted an inmate as saying there was no attempted jailbreak.
Complaining that they were dying, some of the inmate were quoted as saying, “We do not know what they want to do with us, some people are on the ground now rolling and crying.
“There is no jail break, yet they woke up this morning to started shooting teargas at us.”
