Kirikiri Maximum Prison Wall Collapses, Prisoner Escape Averted (PHOTO)

Jail break was recently averted at the Maximum Security Prison, Kirikiri, Lagos when the prison fence collapsed after a heavy downpour.

DailyPost exclusively gathered that the fence fell inward after the last Sunday’s heavy rainfall, a development which led to palpable fear within the prison vicinity. A reliable insider hinted our correspondent that it all started on Sunday morning during an early morning downpour that was accompanied by whirlwind.

“Whenever the cloud is murky, we’ll order all the prisoners inside. So on Sunday when the cloud was gathering,we ordered all of them in,” the insider said.

“When the rain started, we heard a loud sound, at first, we thought it was an attack but when we got there, we discovered the fence had fallen.

The source further revealed that, the warders in charge of the Maximum Prison quickly alerted some security men who arrived and cordoned the fence. He said security men from the Nigeria Police, army and prison
arm guards were on ground to stop any prisoner who may want to escape.

“They were ordered to mend the fence with zinc pending when the fence would be raised,” the source added.

When DailyPost visited the Prison Barracks on Monday, the presence of heavily armed security men was noticed around the broken fence.
