  • In Warri Windstorm blows off Delta prisonís roof

     


    Hundreds of inmates at the Okere Correctional Centre in Warri, Delta State, are now without cover over their heads as the roof of one of the buildings was blown off by windstorm following a heavy downpour on Monday evening.

    Other buildings housing inmates, warden offices as well as a section of the fence were also destroyed, with the incident causing pandemonium in the area.

    The development led to the deployment of more security agents in the premises of the correctional centre to prevent inmates from escaping.

    An eyewitness expressed fear that an unknown number of inmates might have escaped from the facility.

    Another source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told journalists that the entire premises of the correctional centre became flooded as a result of the downpour, which was accompanied by heavy winds that destroyed the roof of one of the building.

    ďAnother building was also affected and the wall of the prison was damaged,Ē the source stated.

    An official of the correctional centre, however, told our correspondent that despite the incident, no inmate escaped from the facility.

    When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Onome Onovwakpoyeya, confirmed the development but said no inmate absconded from the facility.

    The PPRO stated that following the incident, security agents led by the Warri Police Area Commander rushed to the facility to restore normalcy and beef up security.

    She said, ďAs soon as it happened, policemen from the ĎAí and ĎBí divisions and other divisions under the Warri Area Command, including the Area Commander himself, were quickly deployed in the scene to beef up security at the facility.

    ďThe roof and the fence were damaged. I am not aware of inmates escaping during the incident. Tactical teams and quickr teams were also deployed in the centre.Ē
