The Nigeria Police have confirmed that 200 prisoners escaped in a jailbreak at the Minna Medium Security Prison on Sunday night.

Prison authorities blamed the jailbreak on armed attackers, who reportedly stormed the prison at about 8:00 p.m, killing a prison official in the operation.

Mr. Dibal Yakadi, the Commissioner of Police in Niger, said in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna that only 19 out of the 219 prisoners that escaped have been arrested.

“We are working in collaboration with other security agencies in Niger State to make sure that we re-arrest the runaway inmates.

“The police has embarked on stop and search for all vehicles and also engaged personnel on motor and foot patrol to ensure that we apprehend these inmates,’’ he said.
