Unbelievable! Unknown Gunmen Kill Soldiers On Duty, Set Prisoners Free In Kogi
Armed gunmen assassinated some Nigerian soldiers in Kogi state. The incident occurred at the medium federal correctional centre in Kabba, Kogi State’s Kabba/Bunu Local Government Area.
Hundreds of prisoners were also released by the armed men. On Sunday night through Monday morning, tens of gunmen attack the prison centre on the Kabba – LOKOJA highway, killing the military men serving as guides on the road before attacking the centre.
The gunmen then launched an attack on the prison officers before attempting to free all of the prisoners. According to Punch, their escape was prompted by an early morning downpour on Monday. The building where the inmates were housed was reportedly flooded. However, approximately 100 of the inmates were re-arrested, while an unspecified number voluntarily surrendered.
