Abolongo Prison Attack: FG Claims Voluntary Return of some Inmates

The Federal Government says security operatives have recaptured some of the inmates who escaped from the Medium Security Custodial Centre in Abolongo, Oyo State, on Friday.

Media Adviser to the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, Sola Fasure, stated this in a statement issued to newsmen on Saturday.

As the number of those who fled the correctional facility is yet to be ascertained, Fasure added that  some other escapees returned voluntarily while some are still on the run.
