38 suspects escape from police custody in Enugu


At least 38 suspected criminals have reportedly escaped from police custody in Enugu State.

Police sources told journalists on Monday that the criminals who were remanded in the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) at the state’s police command headquarters in Enugu, the state capital, escaped on Sunday night.

Sources told journalists that the inmates who escaped from the cell were remanded in the command headquarters on the order of a magistrate court after they were indicted for various offences.

They added that the congestion of the Nigerian Correctional Service in Enugu forced security operatives to keep the suspects in police custody.
