It was a taste of freedom when some parts of a medium federal correctional center in Koton Karfe in Kogi collapsed as a result of heavy flooding which has led to the escape of two hundred and twenty-eight inmates.

This was disclosed by the comptroller-general of the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS), Jafar Ahmed while speaking with journalists in Koton Karfe on Monday.

Ahmed said the walls of two cells and a perimeter fencing came down after a flood hit the facility at about 3:00 am.

The comptroller-general said the center is no longer habitable because of the incident.

He said some re-arrested inmates have been transferred to other facilities in the state.

Ahmed said details of the incident will be made public soon.

While reacting to the development, the security adviser to the Kogi State Governor, Jerry Omadara told newsmen that they were informed of the development about 4:00 am.

Omadara said Bello directed the head of security agencies in the state to deploy their operatives to the scene.

The security adviser said security agents were still combing the bush in an effort to re-arrest some of the fleeing inmates, adding that the flood was not making it easy for them to escape.

While commending the security agencies for their prompt intervention, he said nobody died in the incident.
