Inmates Who Voluntarily Return
Rauf Aregbesola, Minister of Interior Affairs, says the Federal government is willing to grant amnesty to inmates who voluntarily return to prison after they were released during the attack on the Imo state correctional Center on Monday, April 5.

Aregbesola made this known while inspecting the attacked centre today Tuesday, April 6.

The minister said the federal government will leave no stone unturned to fish out perpetrators of what he described as a “dastardly act”.

His Statement

“Unlawful escape from custody is a crime but government in its magnanimity will grant amnesty to prisoners who willfully return. They will no longer be charged with unlawful escape but only for the initial crimes that took them to prison. So we urge all escapees to return before they are caught on the run.”

1, 844 of the inmates are currently on the run
