The bloody incident that was like the mini version of Micheal Schofield "Prison Break" took place at about nine o’clock yesterday morning when the vehicles in which the prison warders were conveying some of the prison inmates to court was attacked at the Okere Roundabout in Warri.
Eyewitnesses said that two of the prisons officials and one inmate (awaiting trial) were killed on the spot when the gunmen suddenly opened fire on their vehicle. Three other officials were said to be lying critically hurt in an undisclosed hospital in the area following gunshot wounds they received during their gun battle with the attackers. Viewer's discretion is advised:
Also according to Joisaysblog, the armed gang were said to have operated with two vehicles which they parked at the busy Okere roundabout unknown to the prison officials. But three of the prison inmates who fled with the attackers after the encounter had been re-arrested by the police and handed over to the Prisons Department in Warri.
