Prisoners numbering 31 are currently on the run after a prison truck conveying them to court was hijacked by heavily armed gunmen in Pietermaritzburg, KZN, South Africa on Wednesday morning, April 28.

 

Spokesperson of the KwaZulu-Natal police, Brigadier Jay Naicker, who confirmed the incident stated that at around 8am, two police personnel were transporting prisoners from the PMB New Prison to the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court when they were ambushed by a double cab bakkie with 5 “heavily armed” gunmen.

 

“The suspects pointed firearms at the police officers and forced open the rear of the truck. 31 awaiting trial prisoners escaped out of the 45 that were in the truck. A manhunt is under way for the escapees,” Naicker stated.
