Inmates from the Sapele, Delta State Correctional Service on Monday set the facility on fire and attempted break out.
This came up after the state government granted an amnesty release to some 73 inmates in order to provide more grounds to curb the spread of the coronavirus, according to Vanguard.
However, it was also gathered that since the signing of the release, only three persons have been released and let go.
