Journalist Fisayo Soyombo who lived inside a prison cell as an inmate during an undercover investigation sometime 2019, has said that the Edo jailbreak that occurred this morning couldn’t have taken place without the assistance of some of the prison officials.
According to Fisayo, it is impossible for hoodlums or protesters to break into a prison to set prisoners free without the tacit support of prison security.
Reacting to the jailbreak via his Twitter handle, Fisayo wrote
”As someone who lived eight days in prison as an inmate during an undercover investigation, I can tell you that it is NOT possible for unarmed protesters or hoodlums to break into a prison in Edo State or elsewhere and set inmates free. Ko possible, sir.
No largescale jailbreak can succeed without: (i) the active connivance of prison insiders, (ii) the tacit support of prison security or (iii) the disguised involvement of prison authorities. When you’re ready to tell us the truth — or if you ever will — we’ll be here, waiting.”
