It is definitely not the best of times at the Nigerian correctional service as reports making the rounds have it that gunmen invaded a prison facility in Kogi State on Sunday, killing scores of people and freed hundreds of inmates.
The last time a situation of this kind happened was some months ago when gunmen stormed a prison facility in Edo state and freed inmates there too.
In Kogi, the gunmen reportedly killed to soldiers and freed about 240 inmates to the surprise of many.
Meanwhile, Primate Elijah Ayodele had warned in his annual book of prophecy titled warnings to the nations that he foresaw prison break in Nigeria. This prophecy was a warning to the Nigerian correctional services to fortify security in their several facilities across the country but it seems much attention wasn’t given to this prophecy.
Primate Ayodele, on page 299 of Warnings To The Nations (2020/2021), categorically stated that he saw prison facility being attacked and that officials attached to the prison would be attacked too.
As earlier stated, two soldiers were killed at the Kogi prison before the jail was broken and about 240 inmates got freed.
