The Nigerian Correctional Service, NCS, on Wednesday, released some names and images of 122 inmates who escaped from the Abolongo Custodial Centre in Oyo State last week Friday.

Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola had on Sunday said 446 out of 907 escapees in the Abologo correctional facility in Oyo State have been recaptured by security agencies.
“As at the last count, 446 of the escapees have been recaptured, leaving 392 still at large. We want to assure Nigerians that the service has an updated database of the escapees which includes their biometrics. We are sharing the database with all security agencies in the country including Interpol, so those who escape our recapture efforts can be nabbed,” the Minister stated.
“To those on the run, be assured you have nowhere to hide. You can run, but you can’t hide. We’ll fish you out! We are publishing details of those who escaped in the mass media so the public can assist in that effort.” he added.
