Unknown gunmen had on April 5, 2021, attacked the facility, freeing over 1,800 inmates.
He said the attack on Owerri Correctional Centre, was the worst in the history of the country.
“Let me say it loud and clear here when the investigation is concluded, Nigerians would know the roles played even by our officers in Owerri.
“But I must give kudos to our personnel in Bauchi Kano and Lagos (Ikoyi) for their gallantry in frustrating attempts by intruders to attack our facilities. They did not allow small, small things to sway them from doing their jobs,” Aregbesola said
