Prison officers shoot at inmates in Kuje prison

29 August 2016, 14:43

Abuja - There is pandemonium at the Kuje Prisons, Abuja as prison officials are currently shooting teargas at inmates, Vanguard reports.

The shooting was said to be a fallout of the last jail break in which some top officials were reprimanded.

Our source said:”There is a lock down in the prison, ‎prisons officials are throwing tear-gas at the inmates to cow them because of the last jail break.” Some of the inmates complained that they were dying.

“We do not know what they want to do with us, some people are on the ground now rolling and crying.”

“There is no jail break, yet they woke up this morning to start shooting tear gas at us,” they added.

14 prison officials from Kuje prison were suspended following the recent jail break at the prison according to News24.

The officers who belong to the Nigerian Prisons Service were suspended from duty in order to allow unhindered trial process.
