Today, 19th of October 2023, at about 09:14am, some hoodlums in a premeditated move at Ọja Oba roundabout boisterously made a tumultuous attempt to broke into the convoy of the custodial vehicles conveying high profile inmates, which include, AbdulAzeez Adegbola (Tani Olohun) to the court. This resulted in a pandemonium which saw the Correctional vehicle damaged, shattered and battered.
These obviously led to injuries sustained by both Okada riders and some of the custodial personnel. Two of the custodial vehicles which managed to secure their passage was again waylaid and attacked at Niger road Junction. The personnel of the Correctional service were able to manoeuvre their way to the court.
However, those who sustained injuries have been moved to the hospital for medical attention and are responding to treatment. NO LIVE WAS LOST SO FAR.
The Nigerian correctional service appreciate the all sister agencies for synergy demonstrated, we also assure the public of an harmonious relationship at all times. Thank you
