During an attempted jailbreak by some of the inmates at Kosere Correctional Centre in Ile Ife, Osun State, four detainees reportedly died on Tuesday.
Some detainees plotted to escape during morning sanitation, according to a high security source who spoke with our correspondent.
The inmates had harmed a warder while attempting to exit the center, according to the source, and were about to force their way out when security men repulsed them.
“Four inmates were killed. A warder was also injured. The incident happened during morning sanitation on Tuesday.
“They had planned to escape and one of them attacked the warder, while others forced their way through the only entrance, but the security men repelled them and in the process, four inmates were shot.
“They eventually died. And others that wanted to escape ran back when those that led the attempt were shot,” the source said.
However, when approached, Sola Adeotan, a spokeswoman for the Osun Command of Correctional Service, stated there was no information about the event.
Yemisi Opalola, the Osun command’s Police Public Relations Officer, acknowledged the event but requested additional time to gather facts.
“Attempted jailbreak in Ife? It happened but the detais are not available yet. I will get back as soon as I get further briefings,” Opalola said.
