Videos of the current prison break in Edo State Capital, Benin shows inmates who suddenly found themselves on the streets, running in different directions and some without shirts and shoe.
Adeniyisblogs gathered that an angry mob on Monday attacked the Benin Prison along Sapele Road, Edo State, freeing many inmates in the process.
One of them, who stopped to speak with residents of the area where the video was shot, said that he had been on trial for over two years without his case ever coming up for hearing.
According to him, the Investigating Police Officer of his case collected money from him but never investigated the matter, leaving the authorities to throw him in jail.
While walking away from the scene, he rained curses at the policeman; he claimed was behind his ordeal.
The entire vicinity of the prison is currently in chaos as the mob is wreaking more havoc around the place.
A spokesperson for the Nigerian Correctional Service, Francis Enobore, could not be reached for more information on the incident as of the time of this report.
