Aregbesola gave the assurance while inspecting the attacked centre today Tuesday, April 6.

The minister said the federal government will leave no stone unturned to fish out perpetrators of what he described as a “dastardly act”.


“Unlawful escape from custody is a crime but government in its magnanimity will grant amnesty to prisoners who willfully return. They will no longer be charged with unlawful escape but only for the initial crimes that took them to prison. So we urge all escapees to return before they are caught on the run.” the Minister said
