According to multiple reports, on Sunday morning some suspected armed robbers and kidnappers allegedly escaped on New Year eve from detention at the State CID, Benin City, the Edo State capital.
DAILY POST gathered from a source close to the police command who does not want his name mentioned that the midnight action has also led to the arrests of policemen responsible for the escape.
The source said it is true that the ugly incident happened.
“It happened some nights ago but has remained a top secret within the police authorities in the state.”
Other sources attribute the new jailbreak as negative proceeds from the 2020 jailbreaks of EndSARS protest which saw so many police stations razed in Benin and the breaking of Oko maximum and white house prisons.
