Edo State: Police Getting threat Messages and Calls from fled inmates

You may recall, some thugs attacked Maximum Correctional Centre known as the ‘White House’ on Sapele Road and the Medium Correctional Centre on Airport Road, both in Benin during the #EndSARS protests and fled about thousands of inmates.

Edo Commissioner of Police, Babatunde Kokumo confirmed the threat calls and messages are mostly for policemen who investigated and prosecuted the convictions of the escapees.

Speaking on the matter, Kokumo stated;

The peaceful #EndSARS protests were hijacked by hoodlums. The protests took a violent turn in Edo State, with inmates of the two correctional centres in Benin City set free. So, what do you expect?

Some of the escapees have been sending threat messages to policemen, who investigated and prosecuted them. One of the escapees, who was convicted for murder, went that same day (October 19 this year) and he killed the prosecution witness in his village, but he was immediately rearrested.

Everybody must be part of the restoration of sanity to Edo State. People who know the escapees should avail us information about them. I am assuring you that we are not sleeping, but with what has happened to the police in Edo State, some of these hitches are expected, but we are not sleeping and we will continue to work
