Hundreds freed after deadly Nigeria prison break

Nigerian authorities say 252 inmates are on the run after gunmen attacked a prison in the central city of Jos.

Nine detainees, one prison staff member and one of the gunmen were killed during Sunday’s raid, the Correctional Service said in a statement.

At least 10 inmates who fled were rearrested.

The attacked prison is located in an area housing the state headquarters of the country’s security agencies, including the police.

Armed groups – sometimes trying to free their detained members – have frequently targeted Nigeria’s crowded prisons.
