Information reaching acostictv.com indicates that over 1500 inmates have been freed at the Owerri Correctional Prison after a prison break spearheaded by unknown gunmen.
The perpetrators decimated the IMO State Police Command Headquarters situated in Owerri,burnt and destroyed vehicles and other properties they could lay hands on.
They did not end there,but went on to free suspects in almost all the cells at the State Criminal Investigation Department of the Command.
According to sources close to the scene , the perpetrators invaded the premises on Monday morning around 1am to 3am.
It is reported that the gunmen chanted at the Government House Roundabout for close to an hour before attacking the premises.
They meandered their way into the facility with the aid of explosives and dynamite and told the inmates to go home because Christ has resurrected and they therefore don’t have any reason to be there.
