Imo Attack: Osinbajo Preaches Peace, Urge People To Resist Any Violence

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Our dear city of Owerri had its peace and tranquillity shattered by heavily armed hoodlums who blasted open the doors of the correctional facility, facilitating the escape of well over 1,000 inmates; many of whom were dangerous criminals. They also attacked the police headquarters at “Shell Camp” burning several vehicles and even attempting to overtake the police armoury, if not for the effective resistance of the police.

See Pictures From Nigeria Prisons That Got People Talking Online

Earlier yesterday @Truthfully83 shared a personal experience on his visit (along with a law practitioner friend) to 3 prisons in Nigeria. In his words, you'll weep for this nation, at the sight of inmates. Many of whom are innocent. From sources unknown, NPS currently has 75,489 prisoners out of which 24,450 are convicted while 51,139 of them are awaiting trial. Could this be true? Or a mere exaggeration? He went further to say in one prison, 645 prisoners are sharing 2 toilets. How inhumane. Why then did they change the name from prison to correctional facility?
