The Imo prison inmates who voluntary returned after the jailbreak in Imo State will be getting amnesty from the Federal Government of Nigeria.
News Mail Nigeria reports that Rauf Aregbesola the Minister of Interior Affairs said this on April 6th while inspecting the Imo state correctional Center which was attacked on Monday, April 5.
Aregbesola assured that the Buhari led government will do everything humanly possible to fish out the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
“Unlawful escape from custody is a crime but government in its magnanimity will grant amnesty to prisoners who willfully return. They will no longer be charged with unlawful escape but only for the initial crimes that took them to prison. So we urge all escapees to return before they are caught on the run.”the Minister said
As you read, 1, 844 of the inmates are on the run.
