Following the attack on Jos Correctional Facility on Sunday evening, the Plateau State Controller of Nigeria Correctional Centre, Samuel Aguda, said 11 people died and 7 critically injured during the incident.

He also said 252 inmates are still at large, 10 were recaptured and 2 were brought back by their parents; while out of the 7 injured, 6 are inmates and the other person is a Correctional Center personnel.

The State Comptroller equally said out of the 11 killed during the incident 9 were inmates, 1 was an officer with the Correctional Center, and the other person was among the attackers.
Saga Gist recalls that at about 17:20 hours on Sunday, the facility came under attack by yet to be identified gunmen who reportedly stormed the centre in large numbers with sophisticated weapons.

Briefing journalists in his office, Aguda said, “One of the gunmen trapped within the Medium Security Custodial Center, Jos after invading the facility has been identified as one of those killed in the gun duel.

“Sadly, one of the NCoS Armed Squad personnel paid the supreme price in the encounter while 9 inmates also lost their lives.

According to him, “Another staff of the Service was shot in the hand and 6 inmates were also injured in the attack.

“Some of the attackers and a total of 264 inmates escaped in the melee beforè reinforcement could come from sister agencies.

“However, 10 have so far been recaptured, and 2 others were brought back by their parents, leaving 252 at large.

The State Comptroller further stated that 789 inmates are still in custody.

“Sadly, no arrest has been made in connection to the incident that happened at this facility,” he maintained.
