Governor Obaseki Extends Ultimatum, Gives Fleeing Prisoners One Week To Return

Edo state Governor, Godwin Obaseki has extended ultimatum issued to prisoners who recently escaped from two prison facilities in the state.

Obaseki, who had initially given the fleeing inmates until Friday, October 23 to return, extended the ultimatum by one week.

Obaseki’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, in a statement expressed that the decision was taken after a security meeting held with heads of security agencies in the state on Friday, October 23.

The statement reads;

The extension of the ultimatum is as a result of the positive response from the prisoners, as a good number of them have since returned to the two correctional facilities. The new window is to allow more prisoners to return to the centres willingly.

The governor has reviewed the curfew time in the state to commence from 6pm to 6am daily, as against 4pm to 6am. The adjustment will take effect from Saturday, October 24, 2020.
