Rauf Aregbesola, minister of interior, says the fugitives who escaped from the custodial centre in Owerri, Imo state capital, will be pardoned if they voluntarily return.

The minister gave the assurance while inspecting the centre on Tuesday following an attack on the facility.

He said unlawful escape from custody is a crime but assured that willful returnees will be exempted from prosecution.

The minister said he will ensure that the ones involved inside the assault are introduced to e-book.

Aregbesola said the federal authorities will go away no stone unturned to fish out perpetrators of what he described as a “dastardly act”.

He said: “Unlawful get away from custody is a criminal offense but government in its magnanimity will provide amnesty to prisoners who willfully return.

“They will not be charged with illegal escape however best for the preliminary crimes that took them to jail. So we urge all escapees to return earlier than they're caught at the run.”

Seye Oduntan, the deputy controller of correctional service in price of Owerri custodial centre, said 36 inmates stayed returned after the attack while six humans had thus far returned.

The police have accused the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) of being answerable for the prison spoil and the attack on a police command headquarters within the country.
