  2. Never do anything when you are in a temper, for you will do everything wrong…the prisioner as commit a crime to be jail an innocent soul.may soul rest in peace

  3. Committing crime over crime instead of repent and sober of the crime that he has committed. They should punish them more.

  4. hahahaha…stupid people who thought they were doing the police and government harm by burning and opening the prisons for criminals to escape.. una never see anything yet..where are the remaining 1,800 plus inmates? Are they not living among u people now? u people will learn ur lessons now that its not good to do unlawful things.. may God punish all the enemies of Nigeria ijn

  5. Lesson: it’s not everything that someone sees that someone must say or talk about, I pity the neighbour anyways…. the criminal should be brought to book immediately

  6. This is wonderful and a bad story to hear
    I hope all of them have been rearrested so that they will not be a nuisance in the community
