NEWSTODAYNG garnered that some inmates, attempted to escape from the prison facility amidst the tension but were prevented by the warders.

Meanwhile, Officials of the prison confirmed the death of the inmate, adding that “The guy has been sick for weeks now, but the situation deteriorated last night and the wardens refused to attend to him until he gave up the ghost around 6:28 am this morning.”

NEWSTODAYNG recalled that terrorists attacked the Custodial Centre in the Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory in early July.
