Inmates in Bauchi State correctional facility numbering five and two officials of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS), have been injured in a prison riot.

Abubakar Adamu, spokesperson of the NCS in the state, who spoke with Channels Television said that the State Police Command however sent a reinforcement to prevent a potential jailbreak in Bauchi metropolis, the state capital.

Adamu who played down claims of sporadic shootings being witnessed at the scene, said the inmates instigated the violence as a means to effect a jailbreak following Monday’s jailbreak in Imo State.

He said;

“There was a riot, not sporadic gunshot traced by inmates. It was the inmates that instigated the riots, maybe wanting to break the prison and get out.

“It was as a result of what happened in Imo State where some gunmen broke the prison and got away with some inmates from there. We have some conspires from the south and they are serving their sentences here.

“Hearing what happened down south, they wanted to experience the same thing here in Bauchi. We thank God the issue has been quenched.”
