Fleeing inmate disguising as madman rearrested In Edo
Security operatives have rearrested a prisoner who escaped from a correctional facility in Edo State
The prisoner was feigning mental instability to hoodwink unsuspecting members of the public and evade arrest when he was nabbed.
The escape, it was gathered, was among inmates that escaped from a correctional centre following a jailbreak during the #EndSARs protest in the state in 2020.
It was further learnt that the escapee had been hibernating around the correctional centre for over three weeks before he was apprehended.
A security operative said an Android phone was recovered from the escapee after a search conducted on him.
The spokesman of the correctional service in the state, Aminu Suleiman, said he was yet to be briefed about the incident.
