Hoodlums on Monday have attacked the Oko Medium Security Centre in Edo State and freed the inmates and made away with valuables from offices of prison officials.

NewsWireNGR gathered that the thugs overpowered the five armed guards in the prison facility and looted shops around the area

This is coming some hours after some hoodlums hijacked #EndSARS protest to attack the Benin Correctional Centre and freed inmates.

A prison source told The Punch: “They came in their thousands and their mission was to free inmates. They have been communicating with the inmates because even before they broke into the facility, the inmates were already rioting inside the place.”

Earlier, The Edo State government had imposed a 24-hour curfew across the state till further notice. The curfew is to take effect from 4pm, today, October 19, 2020.
