The Sapele Correctional Service Centre has reportedly been set on fire yesterday by Inmates.
Another contributing factor was an alleged lack of food and water in Sapele Local Government Area of Delta State.
The inmates around 8 am were said to have protested over poor welfare situation in the correctional centre.
Source say that security agencied ensured that none of the inmates escaped.
A source said, “No inmate escaped, but the inmates are angry because they are not taken care of adequately. The Sapele Correctional service has been set on fire by prisoners who said they lack food and water.
“They also said 25 inmates were granted amnesty by the state government, but only three persons have been released, why others are yet to be released.”
The Senior Special Adviser on Security Matters to the Governor and Chairman of the LG, Hon Eugene Inoaghan, are at the centre to calm the inmates
