According to NCS Spokesman Austin Njoku, there is an ongoing investigation to determine the exact number of prisoners who escaped.
He added that they also don’t know the number of casualties recorded in the jail breaks.
“Custodial centres were attacked this morning by suspected protesters under the #EndSARS protests in Benin and Oko in Benin.
“Efforts are underway to arrest the situation and return normalcy back to the centres. The armed squad personnel of the service are working tirelessly to bring the situation under control”, Njoku said.
