Delta State Government Reportedly Starved Prisoners to Punish Prison Break

The punishment was imposed by the leadership of the correctional institution after escaping from prison on October 22, 2020.

Inmates at Okere Correctional Center, Warri, Delta State, organize a protest to complain about the lack of adequate food, at the request of the Edo State government to punish them for running away from the institution.

The punishment was imposed by the leadership of the correctional institution after escaping from prison on October 22, 2020.

According to the website, about 18 people were killed by security officials in the jailbreak.

Some prisoners also left the facility.

Saharan journalists reported that in order to punish detainees for attempting to escape, they were denied food other than dry harry (cassava flakes).

A jail source who confirmed the situation to SaharaReporter said inmates are unhappy, adding that it could lead to another jailbreak if the government doesn’t take action.

“The prisoners are locked up and receive no food.

“The authorities don’t feed them and their families are no longer allowed to bring them food.

“Prisoners are currently protesting against hunger, and what is happening may have a greater effect than the prison break that happened.

“There is a protest action now, as the inmates are screaming about restoring their diet,” the source said.

The source explained that prisoners are given dry harry every three days.
