Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the Nigerian Correctional Service in Kano, Musbahu Nasarawa said the inmates attempted to cause pandemonium but were resisted.

“We have put down the rebellion through the concerted efforts of the prison officials,” the spokesman said.

According to Nasarawa, violence broke out when prison officials attempted to retrieve illicit items found with some of the prisoners.

Unconfirmed reports had initially claimed that the commotion was the result of the poor quality of food the prisoners were served when they wanted to break their fast on Thursday.

Nasarawa, however, denied the claims that the crisis was the result of lack of food items or poor quality of food for the inmates.

He added that normalcy has now been restored to the area.
