Thugs on Monday morning attacked a prison on Sapele Road in Benin City, the Edo State capital.
It was gathered that the armed thugs had hijacked an #EndSARS protest against police brutality and extrajudicial killings.
As shown in viral video, the thugs unleashed terror on prison officials to free inmates.
One of them, who stopped to speak with residents of the area where the video was shot, said that he had been on trial for over two years without his case ever coming up for hearing.
According to him, the Investigating Police Officer of his case collected money from him but never investigated the matter, leaving the authorities to throw him in jail.
While walking away from the scene, he rained curses at the policeman, he claimed was behind his ordeal.
