#EndSARS: Obaseki extends ultimatum, gives escaped prisoners one week to return to prison

The ultimatum issued to inmates, who escaped from the Benin Medium Security Correctional Centre and Oko Medium Security Correctional Centre have been extended by the Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki.

Obaseki had initially given the fleeing inmates until Friday, October 23, to return. However, he has now extended to Friday, October 30, 2020.

In a statement on Friday by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, the governor said this was the outcome of a Security Meeting held with heads of security agencies in the state today.

“The extension of the ultimatum is as a result of the positive response from the prisoners, as a good number of them have since returned to the two correctional facilities. The new window is to allow more prisoners to return to the centres willingly,” the statement quoted Obaseki as saying.
