Over 1,200 inmates, out of a total number of 1,844 inmates that escaped from the Nigeria Correctional Services (NCS), Owerri District, following the attack on the facility on April 5 by unknown gunmen are still at large.

NCS Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the district, Goodluck Uboegbulam, disclosed to The Guardian yesterday that only about 600 of the escaped inmates returned, either voluntarily or through re-arrest.

According to him, officers of NCS have, since the attack, intensified efforts in ensuring that the fleeing inmates return and that the incident did not recur.

He called on the general public to assist in availing useful information that would lead to the re-arrest of the remaining inmates, who, according to him, constitute serious security threats in the society.
