The Ikoyi Prison in Lagos is currently under attack as tension and chaos continue to trail Lagos after the Lekki Tollgate shootings.
Kemi Filani News gathered that some hoodlums defeated officials of the prison, in an attempt to free inmates. However, the prison authorities notified security operatives which later came in with some backup halting the attempted jailbreak.
The eyewitness, who wished to remain anonymous, said, “I can see them from my balcony at the moment. Soldiers and policemen have arrived. I saw prisoners throwing stones and I saw fire.
“A lot of the prison officials have gathered at the entrance of the prison while some of the inmates have retreated.”
