The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has ordered inmates who escaped from the Medium Security Correctional Centres on Sapele Road and Oko, Airport Road, to return to their respective prisons.

Some hoodlums had hijacked the #EndSARS protests and attacked the two prisons and freed about 2,000 inmates.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, Obaseki said the freed inmates must return before this Friday, as they have been causing unrest in the State.

“We know some of the inmates have been released, but we appeal to all inmates who have escaped to come back on their own before the close of business on Friday.

“They should report themselves back as nothing will be done to them but failure to do that, we will come after them as we have their records,” the statement read in part.


  1. Do you think prison is like family house or Sheraton hotel that is good to live and sleep inside. It’s not easy to seize someone’s freedom and eventually he or she is able to get and will misuse the opportunity.

  2. Though, it depends on the type of crime being committed by each prisoners because there are lots of people in prison that didn’t commit any offences. May God leads those prisoners through.

  3. It is good return to the prison voluntarily before they deploy any means of getting you people. it’s not easy but they need to summon the courage and return.

  4. If you are fine be of the inmates…can you do what you requested for? How is that possible…they were freed and freed forever. So don’t expect anybody return, even in a dream it can not happen.
