WARRI - Two yet to be identified inmates, in the early hours of Tuesday, reportedly escaped the Nigeria Correctional Service, Sapele in Delta state.
The Nation learnt that five others in their attempt to escape were shot and are currently receiving treatment at the Central Hospital, Sapele.
The inmates were said to have mounted objects with which they scaled the fence of the facility, around the women’s wing.
The five injured were reportedly caught in their attempt to join the duo who are still at large.
Inmates on Monday protested over the number of their colleagues freed during the visit of the Chief Judge of the state, Hon. Justice Marshal Umukoro, in respect of the presidential pardon, granted prisoners across Nigeria by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Only three inmates were said to have been granted amnesty at the facility, leading to the protest that saw the burning down of the administrative block and destruction of other parts of the facility.
